You may soon be faced with one of the most challenging aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic: The need for nurses with little or no critical care experience being called on to be part of a team caring for severely ill COVID-19 patients, many of whom must be on a ventilator to survive.

Taught by a highly experienced critical care nurse specialist and educator, this program presents key skills needed when caring for a patient on a ventilator. 

Presented through a partnership between ANA and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN).

Content is presented in an easy-to-understand – and use -- manner.  After viewing this webinar, you will be better prepared to be an effective part of a team caring for critically ill patients on a ventilator.

This 60-minute on-demand webinar contains four sections which you can view all at once or one at a time. Topics include:
