What Is An ICU Nurse?

ICU nurses treat patients who require the utmost care due to critical conditions. Unlike an ER RN, this role will typically only see a few patients per day so they can provide their full attention to the details of each patient. Due to the extensive documentation per patient, ICU RNs typically see 1-3 patients per shift so they can provide thorough and detailed care.

ICU Nurse Duties

Some of the responsibilities of ICU nurses can include:

  • Monitoring and evaluating the progress of patients
  • Diagnosing and treating patients by ordering, interpreting, and evaluating diagnostic tests
  • Administering medication
  • Maintaining patients records

To be an ICU RN, you must complete the same degree and credentialing requirements as a registered nurse. In addition to those requirements, candidates must have experience in patient care and have earned a Certified Critical Care Nurse certificate through AACN.
