Nursing staff working at RBWH ICU complete the Queensland Health Transition to Practice Nurse Education Program. This program was initiated in ICUs across Queensland in November 1999. The 12-month, state-wide, workplace based education program has set minimum standards for intensive care nursing education and therefore minimum standards for intensive care nursing practice in Queensland.
RBWH ICU is a QUT Nursing Professional Unit, headed by Professor Fiona Coyer.
In addition there are opportunities for nursing staff working at RBWH ICU to undertake higher degrees and research.
