I graduated from nursing school
in June 2013 and have been working as an RN on a med-surg floor since August. I'm coming up on my 5th month there (4th on my own). As most med-surg nurses, I don't really enjoy it but had to pay my dues and get some experience before leaving.
Right before Christmas, I interviewed for an Emergency Department position at an outside hospital. I think it went well, but I was told I wouldn't hear yes/no until after the holidays. I'm still waiting to hear, and that's ok. This same outside health system called me on Friday to interview me for their Medical ICU.
I worked as an aide in an ICU for 2 years before becoming a nurse, so I'm familiar with the environment, but not the 'nursing' part of it.
What can I expect from an ICU interview? I'm really nervous but both ER and ICU are top interests of mine and I'd be thrilled if either one worked out.
