The PICU RNs - or Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Nurses - are responsible for providing direct patient care to the pediatric patient population in the PICU, including assessment, nursing interventions, and education. PICU Nurses are part of a team that provides care for infants and children with complex medical problems, which may include mechanical ventilation, dialysis, transplantation, or other life-saving procedures. PICU RNs are also heavily involved with patients’ families and physicians to help determine the best course of care and recovery.
