I've been an ED nurse for several years and will be cross-training to CCU next month for a full-time position. I'm excited about the change but anticipating a big learning curve. Are there any CCU nurses here that worked previously in the ER that can describe some struggles experienced during the transition? The obvious one to me would be how I focus my time but I'm sure there are plenty of others I've haven't thought of yet.
A friend of mine on the unit recommended I read "Incredibly Easy Hemodynamic Monitoring", which helped her greatly. Any additional references or words of wisdom that helped you along the way? Thank you!
