sorry this is a double post I first posted in the MICU / SICU section before I realized that there is a general area.
I am new here but have cruised around a few times before.
The hospital I work for has recently finished building a brand new facility and closed the old building that I have worked in for over 13 years. In doing so they have broken up the 63 patient medical floor into 4 different areas. I had stayed on this medical floor simply because of the people I worked with and not the back-breaking job that it was.
I have now gone to ICU and have been there for 4 months since we moved into the new building.
Just wondering how long does it take to get comfortable in such a role change? I am not totally uncomfortable but some things are foreign to me and I don't like not knowing exactly what to do. For example during a code blue, I have participated in many, usually doing compressions or bagging, now my role in that has changed and I find some of the code blues very crazy and confusing.
Just want to be comfortable in what I am doing again.
