I've been working in an adult SICU/CVICU for a few years, and am going to be moving and switching jobs soon. The more I evaluate my job, the more I realize I need something different, but I'm honestly not quite sure what. There's a few Peds CVICU openings at a hospital in the new city, which peaked my interest.
What do you like/hate/love/find extremely challenging about CV surgery patients? (In adults it's usually 50 y/o executive-types who know some higher-up in the hospital but are crying to their mom when you ask them to get out of bed to a chair for the first time.)
