I am required to choose my unit for my senior practicum in my RN program next week. Can anyone who either works in ICU/CVICU, etc. OR someone who was a student in an ICU/CVICU practicum give me some advice as far as what it would be like for a senior nursing student in her final quarter in a unit like that? The thought of it is scary, but exciting. We have a local hospital with a terrific 26week internship program, but one of the requirements is you must have your senior practicum in an ICU of some sort.
