Through the course videos, case studies, tips, and time-savers, you’ll master the concepts of critical care nursing and become an expert in your clinical practice.
- Rapid Assessment: including 5 essentials components of a “down and dirty” assessment
- ABG Analysis: explore the most common causes of arterial blood gas abnormalities
- Rhythm Strip Interpretation: along with 3 most common dysrhythmias
- Advanced Cardiac Care: containing preload, contractility and afterload impacting cardiac output
- Advanced Neurological Care: together with 5 common causes of delirium
- Mechanical Ventilation Management: incorporating 2 ways to increase the ventilator patient’s oxygenation status
- And much more!
Join expert Cyndi Zarbano, MSN, BSN, CCRN, CEN, PCCN, CMSRN, CLNC, NLCP, for this innovative critical care nursing course that will revitalize your career. You’ll master specialized critical care skills, increase your credibility, and grow your career potential — most importantly, you’ll improve your patients’ treatment outcomes
In this comprehensive online course, Cyndi Zarbano will guide you step-by-step through Critical Care — from what is absolutely essential to advanced critical thinking, including:
