Long story short, I will be applying to CRNA schools
in May 15'....with that being said, I have taken interest to the FNP field as well. Can anyone who's in the ER or ICU, tell me about a typical day? I am currently in the ICU as an RN, CCRN-CMC, TNCC etc, but I know I will do advanced practice of some sort, I just can't stay at the bedside. In my hospital the only fnps I actually see are in the ED. I believe there is just one, maybe two. From looking at our patient tracker, many of the patients are children, skin issues, cough and congestion, etc.
I often find myself in the ICU reading/completing orders and thinking, *** are they doing that for? I would have chose this, that, etc. This is with a select few docs, and partly drives my interest in this field.
