And I love it. I'm still working as a HUC (as I did in the EC), but I took this job not only because they were willing to be flexible with my schedule for school, but because they hire 1-2 GNs per year for their critical care internship program... and I wanted to get my foot in the door. This SICU takes all the fresh postop hearts... very cool. My new manager told me that once the RNs there find out that I'm a nursing student, they are going to be dragging me into the rooms to teach me things - and I am really
psyched about that!
I plan to learn as much as I can from them!
