When an Ontario RN takes the critical care certificate program what topics or material will most likely be covered?

Thanks for any input!

I looked into several of these programs in the past, they should prepare you to work in a ICU. They usually go through the different organ systems, and common pathophysiology/treatment involved. Likely touch on mechanical ventilation, different technological supports in an ICU, laboratory ranges, medications seen in an ICU setting, a course on interpretation of ECGs, and a clinical placement to bring it all together. Check on the college of interest website, and they should have a course by course breakdown for you.
