I recently interviewed for an ICU position @ a local hospital and I have 9 months med/surg experience. They are ready and willing to start training me. I worry because I read some postings here about ICU and I have no clue what you guys are talking about!!
Sometimes I feel like I was more knowledgable when I was a nursing student. Med/surg is so hectic and I have so many patients to juggle that I never have time to really think about what is going on with them physiologically. How does ICU compare to this?? I was wondering if you guys could give me some insight. Also, do you think 9 months med/surg is sufficent for this transition?
