I know someone who didn't get the placement they wanted for senior practicum, but still really wants to find a critical care new grad program. This person is quite literally top tier in every other respect. I don't want them to lose all hope. Is there hope for the person to enter directly into the specialty of their design?

- Feb 27 by dah dohI never even had an ICU experience in nursing school and I'm an ICU nurse now! I'm not sure why so many students are fixated on the fact that they didn't get the senior preceptorship of their choice and now bemoan never getting to do the area of their choice. It's not a foregone conclusion that your senior preceptorship will lead you to a job anymore. If your friend wants to ICU, have them apply! If they can't get an ICU new grad position, start off in med-surg-tele for a year or two before trying again.
