The time has come for me to choose a unit for my senior practicum. I am interested in critical care. I work on a PCU/tele unit, so I am familiar with that level of critical care, and I want something more critical.
I was thinking of choosing CCU. Is this unit a good place for apracticum? Do you think it offers a broad learning experience? Are there patients with problems other than cardiac?
Which other units are good? Is an ICU stepdown a better place to learn than an acutal ICU?
