Hi everybody, well it's official. I've just been hired into the neuro ICU as a new grad!
I personally can't believe it, but I guess they saw something they liked. The hiring freeze my hospital went into really helped me also
I would love some advice on what to expect. I asked about the census and patient population during the interview, they told me they deal with everything from head trauma to strokes and hemorrhage.
Is there anything I could do to make my transition smooth? I'm reading up on neuro assessments and pathologies, I already know some of the pharmacology from working on a CVSU.
But tell me about what sort of nurses should I expect? What should I avoid doing? Is there anything new grads do that really get under your skin?
What are neuro surgeons like? Are they as bad as cardio surgeons?
