Student in a CP ICU

  1. 0 Hi everyone. I'm wrapping up my first year in an associate's degree nursing program and have been hired as a student nursing assistant floating between a cardio-pulmonary ICU, and coronary care unit. As a student, I've only done clinicals in med/surg settings with relatively stable patients. I'm just wondering what should I expect working with these patients? I'm a bit anxious about working in such a high-acuity setting, but at the same time I'm quite excited. I have a good chance being hired here as a graduate nursing after I take my boards next spring :-)
