    Hi you guys...I'm sooo excited to be among good company here in the pacu forum. I'm looking forward to having a resource for advice since I'll be starting in the PACU after having worked pediatrics for a year and women's care for a year. I'm looking forward to something new and exciting and I hope that you share my joy!!
    Thanks!! ~Kimmie

    I'm with you on the treatment part. Sometimes we are treated like step-children. We are a critical care area that keeps people alive. I find it interesting that some ICU nurses (FYI: I love and respect ICU nurses) don't feel we measure up until a patient is supposed to go direct, then they want them recovered in PACU because we are better at it!

    I have heard on more than one occassion that in order to get accepted into a crna program one has to have 2 yrs ICU experience..well what about 2 yrsPACU experience..will this not work and if not then WHY? If so then why isnt the nurse applying been told this? i think a PACU nurse is perfectly qualified to handle any cardiac event or otherwise !! Dont you?
