I just received a new job in CCU and I an nervous. I have spent most of y career in peds and neontal. I am not sure what to expect. I am not used to having a pt talk to me! Are any my peds experience trasnferrable to this new position? Any CCU nurses out there? What is you day like. Is it very busy, lots or emergency> They offered me a three month orientation(I think because of my PICU brackground).Is this typical. ANy good reading material to brush up on adult nursing?
