I am currently in my 3rd year of my BSN program. I just finished my pediatric rotation and I LOVED it! I have always been interested in ICU, and I love children and families. I am planning on working in a medical/surgical unit after graduation to , and eventually work in paediatric ICU.
My question to you is, what units did you work on before you started to work in PICU? Did you become certified to work in ICU or paediatrics, or both? If both, Which one came first?
I am required to take a nursing elective, and I just cannot make up my mind between the Critical Care course and the Paediatric Course! (They are both introductory theory) In your opinion, which course should I take to serve me better in the short term?
