ICU Nurse Job Responsibilities

ICU nursing jobs require nurses to work in settings such as intensive care units and cardiac care units, where patients require complex assessment, high-intensity therapies and interventions, and continuous nursing vigilance. The position also involves assisting in the treatment of acutely ill patients with life-threatening conditions, calling for nurses to work with patients and their families in striving to create healing, and caring environments while also focusing on patient advocacy.

Training

ICU Nurse Requirements

To be hired by one of our travel partners, ICU nursing job seekers must have either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in nursing and recent acute care assistance. Also note that the American Association of Critical Care Nurses has found that many hospitals require nurses to spend a year or more on a medical-surgical floor before moving to the ICU.
