Free course for nurses treating coronavirus patients
UCC is one of two Irish universities offering a National Foundation module in Critical Care Nursing to upskill staff during the Covid-19 crisis. This online programme aims to increase the number of nurses who can provide critical care to patients with Covid-19, as well as patients who require intensive care.
The programme, developed in partnership with the HSE, should provide quick and easy access to the type of education needed by nursing staff during the crisis.
The module will facilitate nurses to develop high-level skills in caring for patients who are critically ill and help them to work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals in intensive care settings.
