I am sorting out a dilemma. I am a ER charge nurse. I am wanting to move into nurse manager but the ER slot won't be open for a LONG time. The ICU has a nurse manager position open now. I am not so much worried about my management ability as much as I am unsure about jumping departments. I working in the ICU at my hospital for a brief time but didn't stay because I like ER better personally.
ICU has simularities in the Critical thinking arena but overall ther are a lot of differences as well. Any thoughts? Anyone reading cross trained in both areas and forsee problems? Any management issues I should consider?
