Our mission is guided by our Strategic Principles and has three
critical components; patient care, education and research that
together enhance our contribution to society.
Pediatric Critical Care Nursing is a specialty within nursing that
deals specifically with human responses to life-threatening
problems. Critically ill patients are defined as those patients who
are at high risk for actual or potential life-threatening health
problems. These patients are often highly vulnerable, unstable and
complex, thereby requiring intense, rapid response and vigilant
nursing care. The PICU nurse must be able to monitor and safeguard
the quality of care that the patient receives.
The PICU critical care nurse is responsible for ensuring that all
critically ill patients and their families receive optimal care.
PICU nurses care for patients that require complex assessments,
high-intensity therapies and interventions, and continuous nursing
vigilance in a highly stressful environment. The PICU nurse must be
able to cue into subtle changes in the patient's status that may
require multi-level assessment and intervention to prevent
deterioration into life threatening situations. The PICU nurse must
be able to anticipate the child's needs and be sensitive to the
child's nonverbal communication.
In addition, the PICU nurse must be able to assess the patient and
the family's coping mechanisms and provide/seek support as needed.
The PICU nurse has a responsibility to serve as the patient's
advocate and act as a liaison between the patient, patient's family
and other healthcare professionals including Social Work and Child
