Tons of Awesome, Free Critical Care CEUs


Specializes in NICU, PICU.

I was so excited to learn that for a limited time, the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) is making many of their CEUs available to healthcare workers for free.


I absolutely love the AACN CEUs. There are a handful of journal articles, but the majority are video/audio. Most videos are recorded from the AACN's annual conference (NTI), and they tend to be very engaging.

Usually these CEUs cost $5-$10 each (free for members), but right now, it appears that many related to the care of COVID patients are free to anyone. There aren't any specifically about COVID-19, but there are dozens about ARDS, venilator management, infection control, multi-system organ dysfunction, and all of the sequelae that you see within the inpatient population.

You do have to make an AACN account to access these CEUs, but you don't have to pay for membership. The AACN website will generate a handy little transcript of all of your CEUs.

This is an excellent resource for the step-down nurses who are preparing to take ICU patients in case of a surge.

A huge THANK YOU to the AACN for making these resources available during this challenging time!!
