Standards for Critical Care Nursing in Ontario

Critical Care Nurse Training Standards System Image In 2006, the Standards for Critical Care Nursing in Ontario were developed to articulate core competencies and training standards for nurses practicing in adult critical care units in Ontario. The Standards for Critical Care Nursing in Ontario build on and integrate the Standards of Nursing Practice of the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) and the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses (CACCN).

In 2012, the Standards for Critical Care Nursing in Ontario were revised to provide greater clarity on critical care nursing practice including a focus on inter-professional and multidisciplinary practice, and patient and family centred care.
