    I've been working as an aide in SICU of an urban level 1 trauma center. You will learn SO much! I start nursing school this fall and I feel like I've got such a great foundation. Our responsibilities include: turning, bathing, drawing from art lines or cvp, stocking-fun extras we do: pulling lines, changing dressings, assisting in emergent surgeries, chest compressions, oral care, bowel care, patient/family teaching, pt transfer/discharge. Nurses, residents, attending MD's are all very willing to help teach whatever we want to know! I suggest going for the ICU job!
