    Thank you all for all of your input and advice!! I really appreciate it! I have been leaning towards the cardiac surgery step down unit position, and I'm so glad I posted because now I know it is the right decision. Woohoo! I was excited before, but now you guys got me really excited for this opportunity. Thanks again!

    I would agree with what the others stated; you should go for the cardiac step-down unit. I am a new grad (December 2011), and after a brief stint in a LTC facility, I landed a job on a cardiac progressive care unit. I started about three weeks ago, and I've already learned so much. I don't think you will regret your choice as there will be so many opportunities with this experience and skill set! GOOD LUCK to you!!
