I have an internal dilemma I'm dealing with. I have been seriously interested in preparing for CRNA school for almost 2 years now. My base ICU experience is in Neuro ICU (had many MVA's, OD's, Subdurals,ect) I traveled for a year in the MICU/SICU and Trauma ICU, now I am back in a Neuro ICU.
My problem is that this new unit I'm in is highly specific and my patients are 9/10 not vented or on pressors (mainly generally healthy people going to and from Angio and Q2hr neuro checks thereafter) I love the people I work with and absolutely adore my manager, but I want a different type of pt then is in my unit. I've been thinking of switching to CVICU or taking up a 2nd job in another hospital, just to stay up with things. BTW...Cardiac is my weak point (never worked) and I know that is critical for a CRNA to understand. Should I just go for it and transfer when I'm eligible? And if I did, that would screw up my manager recomendation, right?
