So here is my current dilemma...I am currently between choosing jobs in either the Neuro ICU or the SICU. Both jobs are at the same level 1 trauma hospital in downtown Detroit. My plan is to eventually become a CRNA and I want to make the best choice so I can get into CRNA school. I currently work on a stroke/cardiac unit and I love my neuro patients, so I feel it would be easier for me transition into the neuro ICU. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind getting out of my comfort zone and expanding my knowledge base into another area of practice. I've also heard that SICU's tend to be "farms" or "breading grounds" for CRNA's. I guess I just don't know enough about SICU to know that I would like working there.
If anyone has any experience in these areas or has gotten into CRNA school with either one of these backgrounds I would really appreciate your feedback! Thanks everyone!
