I graduated in May 2012 with an associate degree. I have no prior experience in the medical field and would like to eventually work in the trauma ICU. I am enrolled in an RN-BSN program in the Spring '13 and have possible job lined up in med/surg tele.
Should I work in the tele unit until I finish my BSN and then seek a position in the ICU or gain some experience in the unit with less than 1 year to obtain a new grad ICU position? Is there anything I can do in the meantime to increase my chances of being in the ICU?
