About Critical Care Nurse


Mission


The mission of Critical Care Nurse, a bimonthly peer-reviewed journal, is to provide critical care and acute care nurses with accurate, relevant, and useful information concerning the bedside care of critically and acutely ill patients and to keep critical and acute care nurses informed on issues that affect their practice.
