I am new to this site, and just wanted to say hello to everyone! I graduated this past spring with by Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and passed my boards a little over a month ago! I wanted to see if anyone out there is going to be working at the new Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. I start in the PICU there next month. Is anyone else out there going to be working in their PICU? I haven't even been inside the new hospital yet, but I hear it's absolutely amazing! I hear the PICU is VERY, very nice as well!
ALSO-for any of you experienced PICU nurses out there, is there any advice you would give to a new grad starting out in the PICU? I am very excited but also quite nervous...which I'm assuming is normal. I have grown up working with children all my life, and did my student nurse internship in the NICU at a Pittsburgh hospital and loved it! I am just a little bit nervous about the PICU. Any words of a wisdom from any seasoned nurses out there for a new grad??? Any advice would be much appreciated
I just can't wait to get started doing what I love...working, loving, comforting, and caring for/with children and their families!!!
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to talking with you all soon!
