I'm currently enrolled in a LVN/LPN program here in Texas and I'm approximately 2 months shy of graduating and taking my NCLEX. While I've done my rotations in clinicals, I've become very interested in the CCU/MICU/NICU units in our hospital. As far as most hospitals I've looked into, they will not take any LVN/LPN to their ICU units, which is understandable, but a bit of a killjoy. Once I'm done with school I intend to work at least a year to gain hands on experience before I go back for my RN, but my question is where in the hospital would be the best place to gain experience for CCU/MICU/NICU? I know there is Med-Surg, Ortho, Oncology, PCCU, and ED, but if ya'll could be so kind as to give me suggestions on the best places to get alot of experience to prep for the intensive units. I've been suggested PCCU because in the hospital they say that its the most difficult floor, and if you can work that floor you can work any other. Any suggestions and personal experiences would be awesome! Thank you!
