I have read many suggestions on the site regarding pedi nursing. I will be graduating in December and I have been offered a position in a pediatric ICU at Texas Children's Hospital. The only thing that concerns me is they require a two year contract - while I understand it cost a lot to train and my plans are not to jump around I can't help but wonder why the PICU is the ONLY unit in the hospital that requires this contract. My exposure to sick children has been limited to ortho so naturally I am also concerned about what types of situations are seen usually. Any detail, advice, etc. would be greatly appreciated!! Also, how do the children affect you on a day to day basis after you have gone home??
Thank you very much!!
