I am new to this forum, and I am also going to be starting a new position in Neuro ICU. I have been a medsurg nurse for 5 years. I have had 6 months as a nurse extern and 3 years of neuro/neuro surgery experience on a general med neuro floor, and on this unit we used telemetry and the NIHSS stroke scale. I have also had a additional 2 years of general med surg. I am just a little nervous starting my first position in a ICU especially a neuro icu.
I know its normal to be nervous but are there any tips for someone changing from medsurg to ICU setting? Thanks
