    it would probably be more beneficial to work in a regular ICU. you would gain more live experience of what really goes on. any hospital position would be beneficial while you were in school, it would increase your chances of being hired when you graduate. EICU is specialized to nurses with a lot of ICU experience, so you may not really get what the nurses are doing there.

    Did you ever apply for this position? I am currently looking to switch positions to accommodate my nursing school hours (I was accepted after 3 1/2 years, and am frantically searching for another position). There is a sort of Unit Coordinator position open in our eICU here, and I was interested in getting an interview. Actually I already specifically requested one, and applied, but now I am looking into details of what that would entail. I have heard from others in the eICU before that it was a good position for them to have during school, and unfortunately none of them work there any longer for me to get specific feedback from - so I've been looking around allnurses to see if there is anyone on here that currently works in one, or if you interviewed/took a job/etc...

    Thank you!
