The New Graduate Critical Care Program is an intensive twelve month continuing education program designed to give registered nurses an extended knowledge base in critical care nursing. The program includes both theory and practice in critical care incorporating clinical judgment, critical care knowledge of path physiologic processes and nursing interventions.
Each module of content includes the ethical basis for nursing action in critical care, as well as negotiation strategies for collaborative interdisciplinary work. New Graduates will also develop knowledge in navigating systems of care and resource utilization.
The components identified above will be interwoven into the didactic / seminar / clinical structure of the program. To enhance critical thinking skills and practice performance in crisis situations, program participants will experience simulated clinical scenarios. A precepted clinical experience in the unit of hire for the duration of the program will assist in the transition of professional critical care nurse. Classes are taught by clinical experts from throughout the MGH.
*New Graduates do not rotate through all of the critical care units. New Graduates are hired into one of the participating units and are salaried MGH employees.
