Finally, I am an ICU nurse: CVICU

  1. I've been trying to get an icu position since 2010. I came close twice but I always end up with something blocking me. But today, I received an offer and I will be starting in one month. I am greatful and I will work hard to reach my goals. I am a CVICU nurse.

    Congratulations. A very hard unit to work, but certainly a feather in your cap (no pun intended, but I guess you could make that your nursing cap ).

    If CVICU is like the CV Recovery Room in my hospital, may God have mercy on your soul. I salute anyone who wants to take on that responsibility.
