Assistant in CCU?

  1. 0
    I had a quick question about the duties of a nursing assistant on a coronary care unit. Would they be any different than on med/surg? I am currently a nursing student and was wanting to apply for an assistant job and the only one that is available PT is on the CCU and I'm afraid that I don't know that much about it yet.

    I've been pulled to a CCU before, and I loved it! Mainly, I helped turn and bathe patients. Hold patients over for wound care. I did accuchecks (blood sugars). Blood draws were few due to most of the patients had lines. I spent most of the night LOOKING for work. I enjoyed the experience so much that I am very much considering CCU when I graduate in May.
