    To Yira: Get yourself a course in ACLS, PALS & at least a year or two in an ICU of your choice. You will need it to be able to assess for the critical conditions clients come to PACU with from the OR. Be comfortable with EKG's & airway management. Best wishes!! It's the best job in the hospital!

    I am considering PACU and am glad to read the helpful and required core classes before going to PACU.
    What about working in surgery for 15 years and then going to PACU, would that help prepare one for PACU opportunities?
