Reading ur initial post u sou d a lot like me. I don't like codes and get a little deer in headlights like when stuff goes south fast. I however love and thrive on the so called "sick-stable" patient. Example would be lots of drips with lots of titrating and lots of assessing an anlyzing on what the next step would be to improve ur patient.
I went right from nursing school to a crazy intense cvicu and I'm still here 2.5 years later. Also only one of my patients coded.
knock on wood lol. I think u would be great in an icu. Just make sure u find one with great staffing education and teamwork.
Ps I do know how to spell and such but eversince I went to a touchscreen... ughhh
