Critical Care and Emergency Nursing Program

This part-time/online program offers two courses to Registered Nurses on PEI who want to increase their level of knowledge and skills in either critical care or emergency nursing. It is a satellite program to the courses offered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, through the Registered Nurses Professional Development Center (RNPDC).

The theory portion lasts eight months and has been designed to allow learners to work full-time while studying at a reasonable pace. The clinical learning portion is held in critical care or emergency departments in PEI. Learners will have opportunities to individualize or challenge their clinical learning through three different avenues: a preceptored, mentored, or challenge model.
