In 1993, the Nursing Professional Practice Group – Critical Care was initiated as informal Critical Care Interest Group (CCIG). Nurses working in different Intensive Care Units across the United Arab Emirates identified the needs to form a group that would The group was comprised of ten critical care nurses from clinical backgrounds. The main objectives at this time included sharing expertise and supporting each other. However, there were many difficulties at that time in establishing a formal group. With the help and support of the Federal Department of Nursing (FDON) and the commitment of all members, the Nursing Professional Practice Group – Critical Care was finally established in 1997 by Administrative Decree 27/97. A policy was issued from the Department of Nursing defining their purpose, criteria for forming a group, terms of reference, and the role of the Department of Nursing.
