HI, I would like some advice. I graduate in two weeks and already have a job in a coronary care unit.
I have always known that a lot of nurses feel that new grads should start on a med-surg unit before going to critical care. I feel my case is unique. You see I have 12 years experience as a unit secretary, monitor tech, and nurse aide working in coronary care.
I am having second thoughts, not because I don't think I can handle the pressure but because some of the nurse's belief system. I will have to prove to them that I am able to do the work involved.
I just want to build on all my knowledge that I have and put it to use in the best way I know how and that is to work in CCU.
Any words of advice or encouragement would be appreciated, thank you.
Keep looking toward the dream that keeps coming back.
