I'll graduate this May, and I was just assigned my preceptorship in the SICU! I'm very excited, but would like to prepare as much as possible before I start. Can you all recommend any critical care books / prep materials to get my feet wet? Critical care was only quickly discussed in my nursing program, so I really want to read up on vents, swans, etc. Any other advice please let me know!! I'd appreciate any of the help you all can offer. Also, if any SICU nurses want to tell me a little about their day's work, I'd really appreciate it. I don't quite know what to expect!
Thanks in advance all for the help
