Course Description

Nurses often seek a critical care master`s degree to broaden their expertise and improve their chances of landing a job in critical care. Nurses who graduate from this programme often earn a better income than those who have a bachelor`s degree, and this degree may also be used as part of the requirements for admission to a nursing PhD programme. A Master`s degree in critical care nursing often equips nurses with specialised knowledge and skills to work in acute care institutions such as intensive care units, emergency departments, trauma centres, progressive care centres, and cardiac units, among other settings. Because there is often a lack of critical care nurses, these professionals are in great demand. Some graduates may opt to continue their education and pursue positions as professors or consultants after completing their degree. Graduate nursing degrees may be obtained by those who already have undergraduate nursing degrees and want to further their careers. Acute and time-sensitive medical situations needing specialist treatment are the focus of critical care nursing in most instances. Several employment opportunities are available for Nurses in government and private hospitals.
