I know there are threads like this but I would like a more updated response. What do u guys think? Is icu or med surg better for a new grad? Which is better in general? Do u think one is more difficult than the other. I have read so much on how med surg is better for the new grad. I'm starting an internship at a local hospital where I hope to get hired on as an rn when I graduate. Initially I was going to work on the icu but when I heard about all this new grad med surg stuff I decided to switch to med surg. I want to make sure I am the best nurse I can possibly be, meaning I don't want to limit my skills to one specialty. (At least not until I get basic practice at first). However a lot of these posts on how crazy med surg is, is somewhat scaring me away. Any advice is much appreciated!
