I'm graduating in June and applying for my first RN job and could use some advice.
Ultimately, I want to end up in the ER of a trauma center someday. For now, I'm following the advice to get critical care/ICU experience.
I've read here and it seems that CVICU is the best ICU experience, however, I've facinated by the brain and cognitive assessments. I'm so glad to learn there is Neuro ICU. I've been searching for and applying to Neuro CC/ICU positions. Most of the new grad programs in critical care I'm applying for are cardio. I'm willing to do that for now to learn the ropes but I can imagine myself wanting to move to neuro after one,two (?) years.
Can anyone tell me if Neuro CC/ICU will come back to haunt me down the line when I go into emergency nursing?
Should I not talk about my interst in neuro at the new grad interviews? I don't want to do neuro med/surg only becuase I do want to move to ER someday and want to start with critical care.
Can anyone tell me who is in Neuro CC/ICU the pros and cons of this path?
Do neuro patients have cardio issues too?
