Thank you for your interest in our Interprofessional Critical Care Transport Conference. This conference is our first step back since COVID-19 restrictions were implemented in late 2019! For everyone's safety we are following all CDC and University guidelines with respect to wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and limiting class size. This conference will have a maximum of 20 students. Interested individuals should register early. This will be a one-day class until restrictions ease in the future.

This educational offering is focused on pediatrics, use of ultrasound, and lab and imaging interpretation in the transport environment. There will also be lab and flight simulator experiences. This is a great opportunity for those aspiring to join a critical care transport team to experience the flight simulator and to work alongside student and faculty members of all levels of experience.

This conference seeks to:

  • Enhances experiences for prospective and developing providers within critical care transport teams
  • Provide opportunities for students to obtain specialized training in management of critically ill and injured pediatric patients in out-of-hospital environments
  • Provide continuing education hours for nurses

This conference blends didactic experiences with enhanced, hands-on skills labs, and flight simulation. Additionally, ultrasound, advanced cardiovascular device management, basic and advanced ventilator management, and pediatrics and neonate management experiences are included.*

Cost: $150.00 (This includes breakfast snacks, beverages, parking in the JJ garage, and a light lunch.)

Nursing Continuing Education will be provided. View hotel information.
