FAQs

Critical care involves caring for those with complex medical needs in high acuity situations.

Critical care nurses care for clients with life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Critical care nurses may provide care for a specific population, such as neonates, or specific body systems, such as clients experiencing severe cardiac concerns.

On top of passing the NCLEX® and becoming an RN, to become a critical care nurse, you will have to earn a Master of Science degree in nursing and get certified by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) as a critical care nurse.

Lecturio’s Critical Care Nursing course walks you through all important topics in critical care and prepares you for your exams with high-yield learning videos, exam-style quiz questions and concise cheat sheets. The course highlights advanced skills like ECG readings and arterial blood gas interpretation, and connects them to basics of anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology. Answering the NCLEX®-style practice questions prepares you to ace your exams from the start.
