Bedside Emergencies for the Non-ICU Nurse

One Day Seminar

Wednesday, December 6, or
Thursday, December 7, 2017


Course Description and Program Learning Outcomes

This one-day course will prepare the non-ICU nurse to assess and intervene in life-threatening emergencies at the bedside. Geared to both new grads and experienced nurses in the medical-surgical unit, this course will aid attendees in rapid assessment and early identification of a med surg emergency, leading to rapid intervention and better patient outcomes. Attendees will be given a clinical toolbox to aid rapid response nurses or providers caring for the declining med surg patient.

    This program prepares the learner to:

  • Identify high risk populations for bedside emergencies.
  • Recognize deadly clinical crises based upon your bedside assessment.
  • Intervene appropriately when caring for the patient with a life-threatening emergency.
