I started out on a telemetry unit, where I stayed for a year and a half. I always wanted to do CCU/ICU nursing, but wasnt sure that it was for me or the right time. After Tele, I took the leap to ICU and love it. One to one nursing is great. I feel that there is less burn out.
I have also tried my hat at rehab, med surg
and nursing homes.
The thing I love about my job, is when you get real busy and your patient suddenly gets real interesting (crumping). I know it sounds morbid, but its then that things get more challenging. I also like going to codes, for the experience mainly. The whole code thing is sad and nasty, but someone has to do it.
