I'm a critical care nurse with 2 years of experience, one in a tele/stepdown unit, and another in a CCU/CVR unit and an MICU, each at a different hospital (I worked full time at two places this past year. I know, I'm crazy. Hehe).
I'm just wondering if anybody here works, or worked in the past, at the TCVPO (Thoracic Cardiovascular Postoperative Unit) at the University of Virginia Medical Center. I applied a couple of weeks ago and I'm having an interview with the director this month.
What kind of patients do you usually handle? Beyond the run-of-the-mill CABGs, valve repairs, do you guys handle transplant cases as well? How's the patient load? Do you have enough ancillary staff, like CNAs or ICU techs? How's the salary? Do they offer any differentials, like a weekend or night differential?
Thanks for reading!
