Critical care (Master of Advanced Clinical Nursing)



Critical care nurses look after patients who are in a critical condition or recovering from a serious medical condition in some of the most complex health environments across emergency departments, intensive care units and other high dependency units.

You’ll play a pivotal role in your patient’s care, whether it is during initial assessment or by providing ongoing care for those who are critically ill.

As a critical care nurse you will collaboratively assess and provide care for a range of patient groups including paediatrics, trauma, gynaecological, obstetric, oncology, older persons and those presenting with cardiovascular, renal, neurological and respiratory dysfunction.
