I am new grad RN and will be interwieving for RN position in St. Louis for general medical floor. Can anyone sort of compare and explain to me what type of unit this is? In CA we don't have anything labeled as such "medical floor" so it is hard for me to compare it to other units. Is this similar to med-serge or more intense...Ideally I would like to work on general medical surgical floor as I feel this would expose me to variety of patients with different needs, and I thought as a new grad it's important to have good training that encompasses different levels and types of care needed. So do any of you feel that this medical floor would give me such training like on med serge or even better? I don't want to get stuck working on the floor where I really don't learn a lot.
Any replies would be appreciated.
