I have 1.5 years experience as a med/surg, telemetry RN and am looking for ICU training positions. I just finished a critical care course comprising 60 credit hours. Are there any hospitals that will train straight into ICU? I live in the San Francisco Bay Area but am willing to relocate. My current hospital is severely lacking on training opportunities. Thanks for the input.

I think it just depends on the hospital. My very first job as an RN was being hired as one of six nurse interns (4 of us new grad, 2 with limited M/S experience) that would eventually go to ICU or PCU. They trained us for everything including ECCO, it was an awesome experience!
