Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU) Course

A one day course aimed at the qualified, working PACU or Recovery Room nurse.




Due to upcoming relocation this year to Grafton Campus, there will be no PACU courses running in 2019 and looking forward to resume by 2020.

Course Information

This will be a joint initiative between qualified ACLS/BLS instructors and working PACU nurses utilizing skills and immersion scenarios with an emphasis on team work skills and crisis management.

This is a chance to refresh your BLS/ACLS skills and engage with other nurses from around the country to improve nursing practice and confidence. 

At the end of the course participants should be able to discuss a structured approach to initial management of critical airway/CVS events and verbalise teamwork behaviours they can implement in their work place.

The course is held at the Simulation Centre for Patient Safety, University of Auckland Tamaki Campus, 261 Morrin Road, Glen Innes, Auckland.
