I am a new nurse. My first 6 months of experience is on a Med / Surg floor. I have become aware of an Emergency care unit opening at a local hospital. I applied for a same day surgery position but was contacted by their human resources dept to say that position would be filled by someone with years of experience but thought my med/surg experience would be perfect for their EDCU. I sort of understand that it is a post Emergency department holding unit for those patient's that have been admitted but are waiting for a bed to be located. Please tell me the responsibilities of this department and the pros and cons in general and especially for a somewhat new grad. Thanks in advance for any insight and comments.
