ICU Critical Care Nurse Duties

An ICU critical care nurse must be able to thrive in stressful situations, with an aptitude for quick thinking, critical decision making and patience. As one of the most complex nursing jobs in the field, an ICU critical care nurse uses many years of skills and experience to care for patients who have experienced trauma or who are critically ill. A critical care nurse is responsible for a wide variety of duties, including: treating wounds, assisting physicians in performing procedures and operations, assessing a patient’s condition and making plans for their care, recording patient vital signs, ordering diagnostic tests, responding to life-saving situations, maintaining protocols for treatment, ensuring that monitors and ventilators are functioning properly, collaborating with other members of the critical care team, educating the patient’s families, and, last but certainly not least, acting as the patient’s number one advocate.

ICU Critical Care Nurse Education Requirements

ICU critical care nurses must first possess all the requirements to becoming a registered nurse. The registered nurse then must have experience in general patient care. Since the ICU requires critical thinking and often dire patient situations, it is of utmost importance that the critical care nurse be experienced and familiar with all types of care situations in order to support the best chances of success in the patient. Employers tend to prefer nurses with BSN degrees. An ICU critical care nurse must also have earned the Certified Critical Care Nurse certificate, which is offered through the AACN.

ICU Critical Care Nurse Job Market

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an ICU critical care nurse have a much higher earning potential than their RN coworkers. This is because of the amount of experience and intensive experience a critical care nurse must have. The job is fast-paced and strenuous, and a nurse must be prepared for any kind of situation.
