What does the program include? Our program includes a combination of clinical and didactic training, a portion of which is approved for contact hours.

Residents will have the opportunity to strengthen their clinical skills, sharpen their nursing judgment, and organize care for diverse patient populations. They will work in multidisciplinary teams with the most up-to-date equipment and use Evidence-Based Practice. There will be opportunities to be part of current nursing research, and all residents will gain an appreciation for the special interaction between nursing, critically ill patients, and their families.
