Description:BCIT offers the only high acuity certification program in Canada to meet the needs of this growing nursing specialty. Our committed and experienced faculty ensure that you have the skills to offer the best health care possible to patients.

High acuity applies the foundational medical-surgical nursing skills you learn as a registered nurse (RN) to an acute care setting. A niche area of patient care, high acuity nurses work in inpatient units supporting acutely ill adults with multiple health challenges. No two patients are the same and each requires individualized care. We prepare you to succeed in this challenging nursing specialty.
