Critical Care Program

Winnipeg Critical Care Nursing Education Program

Announcing a new model career-enhancing Winnipeg Critical Care Nursing Education Program (WCCNEP) for all eligible Manitoba or out -of -province registered nurses, whether you currently work in critical care or not.

Learn While You Earn

This is your chance to study the most up-to-date and technologically advanced methods of treating critically ill patients in medical, surgical, intermediate, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units. Using the newest equipment available, this dynamic new program takes place in a highly supportive, buddied learning environment that allows for the successful integration of practice and education in this constantly evolving arena.

In 14-weeks, you'll learn concepts, theories and practices in a lab setting and apply in-depth assessment and the critical thinking skills which will enable you to provide high quality care to critically ill patients.

Specialized orientation follows, specific to the designated Winnipeg community or tertiary hospital ICU unit where you'll be employed (from 4 to 10 weeks, varying in length according to site). This enables you to make a smooth transition to the clinical arena.

Best of all, salary relief is available while you attend the course. Come away with sophisticated skills that are highly marketable in your personal career path and sought after for other jobs as well.

Better Your Knowledge, Your Career and Patient Care
