No neuro nursing specialty?

  1. 1 I was just wondering, why is there no neuro forum under nursing specialties? I see there is one in critical care but not in the reg. nursing specialties. Thanks

    Separate Neuro Unit rarely seen outside teaching hospitals so minimal request for info outside ICU level care reason for absence separate forum.....

    Dear NRSKaren,

    I'm sorry, but that's not what I've been finding lately.

    As someone who has been job hunting for a few months, I have been researching many hospitals, and therefore am learning about many floors in hospitals. Almost every hospital I have looked into has a Neuro floor. As a matter of a fact, tomorrow afternoon I have a job interview with the Nurse Manager of a Med-Surg/Neuro floor! I have been finding that there are a lot of medical floors that specialise in Neuro pts. And these are not teaching hospitals.

    Since there is both a CCU forum in the critical care section AND a cardiac nursing forum in the standard section, wouldn't it make sense to have the same for neuro?

    My hospital has two neuro-specialty wards, one for neurosurg and one that cares for neurological and stroke patients (different but cooperative units). Th neurosurg ward has a small HDU but the entire ward is neurosurg patients
