Transition to Practice

Transitioning to Practice; Challenges of the Advanced Practice Providers

Several factors have led to an increased need for advanced practice providers (APPS) in the ICU, including a shortage of intensivists, training hour limitations, and a growing demand for critical care services. As more APPs are called into service, making the transition from school to practice can be challenging. The organizations of the CCSC are committed to providing programs that address the issues related to the transition to practice, as well as the challenges that ICUs face in transitioning care to this type of workforce.
