TICU Nursing

  1. Hi!

    Any GI transplant ICU RNs out there? I'll be starting a new job in TICU soon. While I've never been employed in an ICU, I have 5 years of step down liver/renal transplant experience and 2 years in outpatient endoscopy lab experience. I've read many threads on allnurses about various types of ICU nursing but never came across one specific to GI TICU. Any advice to prepare would be greatly appreciated! I've been reviewing the usual in preparation: interpreting blood gases, hemodynamics, pharmacology, ACLS protocols, etc. I'm excited to move forward and am looking forward to building on my already developed nursing skills.
