I used to work on a tele floor (as a nursing assistant...now I work as a nurse tech on a different floor in a different hospital) and I really liked it...would cardiac nursing be the way to go if I plan on working in the ICU one day?

- May 6, '10 by sarobynkit depends what kind of icu you are looking for, a surgical icu would probably prefer spcu experience, but you can never go wrong with cardiac experience. I was lucky enough to start in a cardiac medical icu right out of school. It is very intimidating and you really realize how much you don't know, getting atleast a year on the floor is good advice.
