Faculty:Centre for Continuing and Online Learning
Field of Study:Critical Care Nursing


If you are a registered nurse in Ontario who wants to work in the dynamic, challenging, high acuity patient setting of an Intensive Care Unit, step-down unit or PACU, you should enrol in this Ontario College Graduate Certificate program.

This program approaches theoretical and clinical fundamentals of caring for the critically ill patient from a systems perspective. Caring for high acuity patients with cardiac, respiratory and neurological problems is explored in depth. Complex health situations are addressed in the classroom and in the Health Sciences Simulation Lab. Nurses practise communication strategies that help them deal with emotionally charged situations that arise in these dynamic environments.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Proof of current Registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario as a Registered Nurse is required.

    Prior to clinical experience, students are required to fill in a clinical application form and submit the following documents to Paramed:

    • Provide proof of current Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation Basic Rescuer "C" Level Training.
    • Complete and submit a clear Police Records Check for Service with the Vulnerable Sector.
