I have 2 yrs med-surg experience and am shifting to ICU in 4 weeks. Pay is good, orientation is for 13 weeks and manager seems happy with me. its a 6 bed ICU, not trauma kind but am very nervous. I have shortcomings, am slow in IV insertions, have not done many heparin drips, some narcotic drips, had trach and NG patients sometimes but am worried will I be able to do everything on time
