Critical Care Nursing Shortages

Patient Care is becoming increasingly complex, Critical Care Nurses will need to become ever more knowledgeable to stay ahead in this field.  

Critical Care Nurses work wherever critically ill patients are found, namely Intensive Care Units, Paediatric ICUs, Neonatal ICUs, Cardiac Care Units, Cardiac Catheter Laboratories, Telemetry Units, Emergency and Recovery Rooms.  We at Cpl are noticing a greater demand for experienced ICU Nurses in the global healthcare market. This in turn means that Critical Care Nurses have their pick of jobs, and are very much in demand.

Cpl is currently working with Europe’s largest single Intensive Care Unit, based at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, with the capacity to care for 100 critically ill patients.  Our team is led by a RGN, who has a Higher Diploma in Critical Care Nursing and many years experience.  They have visited this site numerous times and cannot stop raving about it.  Seemingly it is an ideal place for an experienced Nurse to further develop their ICU skills and work with an industry leader in this space.  There is a huge buzz about this unit – it’s busy, fast paced, technologically advanced and innovative in their practices, and receives patients from their own A&E, other UK hospitals, and from overseas.

The future of Critical Care Nursing is very exciting; with rapid advances in healthcare and technology, more people are being cared for at home, meaning patients in Critical Care Units are more ill than ever.  Many patients in today’s Critical Care Units would not have survived in the past.  Due to the ever changing and evolving nature of Critical Care Nursing, we at Cpl feel it is extremely important for a Nurse with a strong interest to build their career in this field to work with the best Unit available in the country, and in the UK we believe this to be at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, part of the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.  Here you will receive training and be at the centre of the latest information and practices in ICU Nursing, helping you develop your own skills and enable you to manage new treatments and technologies.
