NMHS32830 Foundation in Intensive Care Nursing
Academic Year 2021/2022
The FICN Course is designed to provide the participant with the core nursing skills required to safely, professionally and holistically care for critically ill patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). This course builds on initial generalist nursing education. Intensive care nursing encompasses safe, professional and effective organisation and management of the critically ill patient. On completion of the course, the participant will be able to demonstrate her/his role in relation to patient-centeredness, patient safety, professional accountability and the need for accurate communication with all members of the multidisciplinary team, patients and their families.
On completion of the FICN Course, the participant will be able to:
1. Build on existing nursing knowledge in order to discriminate between variations of normal and abnormal patient assessment findings, and appraise alterations of physiology and pathophysiology pertinent to patients in ICU.
2. Establish an in-depth understanding of the nursing management of the critically ill patient requiring invasive or non-invasive haemodynamic monitoring; and invasive or non-invasive ventilation in ICU.
3. Appraise the principles of prioritisation of care for the critically ill patient in ICU.
4. Focus on applying the principles of effective communication, patient safety and professional accountability in the provision of patient-centred care in the Intensive Care environment.
