Hi, I'm finishing nursing school
in the next month and have recently been hired into a medical/surgical ICU. To all the nurses who started out in the ICU, or all the nurses who have watched others start out in the ICU: what advise and tips do you have in preparing to begin working as a new grad/ ICU nurse? What was your experience like during your first year in the units, and can you pass along any helpful suggestions? I'm so excited about critical care, and I would love to hear your thoughts!
