Most of my background in nursing is adult ICU in smaller hospitals. I am thinking about going to a 1000 bed hospital that has a 45 bed adult ED. Orientation would be around 6 weeks. The position is for 24 hours a week part time Day, Evening. They said orientation could be longer if needed? I have switched specialities much so I have no clue what is reasonable. I have a total of about 6 years of ICU nursing (not all current). Does 6 weeks seem decent? Anyone have helpful books? I haven't accepted the job yet, I have a week to make up my mind. It is one of many options. Thanks in advance
They did say evenings is their busiest time. Also that I would go to a non violent crisis class as well as a one day critical care class.
