thanks for your reply! haha, i know i am planning wayyy ahead of myself, but that's just the way i've always been. i plan my life way ahead of myself, and always looking forward to accomplishing more goals. very type A. it has never done me wrong in the past
yes, in my hospital the TCU is short term skilled nursing for patients not sick enough to stay on the med/surg floor, but not well enough to be sent to LTC facility or home.
in no way do i feel this job is below me, on the contrary i feel i really lucked out getting my first job at such a great institution. and it is a great blessing. but being the type-A planner that i am, i already want to start planning ahead. just wanting advice on what i can do to PREPARE myself for an ICU opportunity.
i agree with you that time management and communication are definitely things that i want to work on, and this job will be a great foundation for me. i am actually glad i didn't start in the ICU, and that was never what i wanted to start in as a new grad, because from what i've heard from new grads it's daunting and i don't want my rn license jeopardized. thanks again!!
