Our Nurses work in collaborative environments with strong interprofessional teams, focused on a patient-centred care model in a richly diverse workspace. Under the direction and general supervision of the Health Services Manager, the Registered Nurse (RN) utilizes the nursing process, critical thinking and problem-solving skills to provide quality, safe, and patient-family centred care. The RN is responsible for the overall coordination and direction of nursing care in the critical care unit. The RN provides clinical leadership, particularly in complex or unpredictable patient/client care settings. The RN is accountable for the development, implementation and ongoing evaluation of the plan of care to achieve patient/client outcomes.

3A Medical/Surgical ICU and 5.2 Medical/Surgical Neuro ICU are located at Nova Scotia’s largest healthcare facility, the QEII Health Sciences Centre. We are an academic teaching centre and are affiliated with Dalhousie University and provide a learning environment for many healthcare professionals as well as opportunities for research and advances in care.
