Advanced Studies in Critical Care Nursing Critical Care

Mount Royal University

Mount Royal University
The ACCN program is the perfect blend of semester-based theoretical coursework and hands on clinical practicums uniquely offered through distance learning to adjust to where you live and your busy life. Applicants have six years to complete the program allowing you to take the courses at your own pace. Flexibility within the semester is built in to allow adult learners to manage external commitments. The ACCN program is recognized by ER and ICU departments across Canada giving graduates from our program a competitive edge when applying for positions. Clinical practicums are offered at select locations across Canada (some restrictions apply). International students, please contact us for possible options. If you already work in the ER or ICU, you may be eligible to challenge the clinical practicum by showcasing your experience. If you are an allied health personnel or nursing student, you may be eligible to take certain theory courses in the ACCN program. Four three-credit theory courses and a 210-hour clinical practicum prepare you to help achieve optimal outcomes for critically ill patients experiencing complex and multiple system challenges. Using evidence-based nursing practices, upon completion of ACCN you will be prepared to work in a range of ICU units, ranging from general settings to the more specific ones such as burn or cardiac ICU units.
