I've been reading through this site for a while and when it comes to new graduates in the PACU, the general consensus (sp?) that I get is that they don't belong there. That being said, I just accepted a job in the PACU of a HUGE hospital as a new graduate. I honestly didn't know much about the PACU when I applied; I just knew that I wanted an intermediate or critical care floor b/c basic med-surg floors are always too slow for me (I did several externships on top of clinicals). I just happened to get an interview for PACU and was 1/4 selected for the new grad internship program on it. Now I find myself in a complete panic about working there- but I don't want to look for another job b/c this hospital is awesome- one of the top ones in the country (not to mention excellent benefits). Can anyone give me ANY helpful suggestions OTHER than run??? If I fail, I'll find something else- but since I've signed a contract I'd love for this to work out- and I love the idea of constant patient turnover. So...is anyone can send any words of wisdom my way that would be great.
