Anaesthetic nurses course
The Anesthetic Nurses' Course of Tygerberg Academic Hospital originated in mid 2014. Nurses working in a theatre environment, who are expected to assist anesthesiologists in their clinical proceedings, are encouraged to attend a 10-week training course presented by the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care of Tygerberg Hospital.
By understanding basic knowledge of the practice of anesthesia, nurses become confident and skilled anesthetic assistants, which improves patient safety and efficient theatre management.
Academic contact sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons from 14h00 to 15h30 inside the theatre complex of Tygerberg Hospital. Those interested in participating in this course can contact the office of the theatre matron of Tygerberg Hospital for further information.
