I wonder how many of my fellow critical care nurses out there work when each unit has it's own staff-vs-nurses who work all units. I have worked two places where nurses worked only ICU or CCU and if one had to float to the other unit, they were somewhat looked down on as inferior because they worked the "other unit." The rest have been like where I work now which is all unit nurses work ICU/CCU/NeuroCU. I think this is a better system and there some whose speciality leans toward one more than the other 2 may spend more time in their speciality but those of use with experience in all three as do all the nurses but us a little more frequently.
