Critical care nursing education at the baccalaureate level.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Traditionally, only experienced nurses were selected to work in critical care. New graduates, however, are being hired for practice in critical care units despite controversy over the suitability of this setting for beginning practitioners. In this article, the authors describe the development of an undergraduate course in critical care nursing, outcomes of the course, teaching strategies used in both classroom and clinical settings, and effects of the course on the new graduate's practice.
