    Hmm...anyone love psych??

    I left my ER job to work in a non-nursing but psych related job. I would eventually like to go back into nursing in 2-3 years and would like to try psych.

    I love, love, love my job in pediatric critical care! I did about a year of general peds after getting my RN, and have worked PICU ever since. Pediatrics was all I ever wanted to do, the ICU part was a surprise.

    I think you took a quote out of my own book!! I worked on a general peds floor for almost 3 years and just came to PICU about 3 months ago and I absolutely LOOOOVE it! It was a surprise for me too! I didn't think I would be able to work under the pressure of an ICU, but so far, so good!

    I had a friend who worked in PICU at the time and I told him that stopcocks freaked me out! I couldn't figure out which way to turn them to make them do this or that. I told him that stopcocks kept me out of an ICU...which he called me names about! I told him recently that I figured out stopcocks, so I made the transfer!

    I actually was working orientation shifts in PICU while still working on the floor and I had no intention on transferring. I was working a lot of extra PICU shifts and wanted to learn new, cool stuff so I could be a better help. Turns out I fell in love! Whoops!
