Which ICU should I do MRICU sufficient?

  1. I looked at the schools that I plan to apply to in the future and they dodn't really specify either way about a MRICU? The hospital that I'm looking to transfer to breaks up their icu's into CVICU, Neuro ICU, surgical etc and I'm interested in the positions they have open in the MRICU... Or should I just stay at our local icu (the accuity level is less here though) that sees a variety of things surgical, some hearts (they do have a cath lab but very underutilized) alot of GI bleeds and is part telly unit as well.

    just looking to find a good home that will provide me with what I need for a few years!

    Thanks!

    Jen,
    If your looking to go to CRNA school in the future the "ideal" is CTICU. This is where you will be exposed to the greatest number of vasoactive gtt's, pa lines, interventional devices, etc. They tend to be stressful, and a little "dog eat dog" but if you can tolerate it you learn a ton.
    Best of luck
