Could anyone tell me what a CCU nurse deals with on a shift? What are your responsibilities? How is it different/similar to Med Surg nursing? Can someone orient me to all of the devices/monitors? Any pics/websites of monitors/devices? What is a typical day like? How do you know you are ready to be in an ICU?
I am currently on a Med Surg floor..and was wondering what it is really like in an ICU.
