So here's my issue. I have been a rehab nurse for almost 2 years at a large rehab facility but it was time for a change. I have recently accepted and began my new role as a Tele/ICU nurse at a very small community hospital. But I feel like I'm not nearly as up to speed on medical knowledge as everyone else on that floor. I'm really scared to mess up. Anyone have any advice for me? Any literature you think I could read?
Also, as a CC nurse, what do you bring with you to work everyday? I used to bring pens, markers, and my ID. LOL. Pretty basic stuff. I didnt even bother bringing my steth b/c there was always a cheap one on the floor. But here I'm see people bring a pulse ox, and fancy stethoscopes, and light pens.... I should be as prepared as every other Tele/ICU nurse, right?!?
Oh, and one more thing: any advice on starting on a new floor?
Any advice would be appreciated!
