Just thought I would comment to get your thought process going . I myself am starting in a STICU in a level 1 trauma center soon too (fingers crossed).
- 0Aug 22, '12 by Bottomed outWell I am new to the hospital as I am relocating for the job. I have no TICU exp. I enjoy reading about trauma. I feel very comfortable with the trauma program director/manager of the unit. I met one staff member. I did have a trauma step down rotation and worked on that floor as a tech twice.
The anxiety and self doubt comes from thinking about all those med drips, not reacting fast, CODES, lots of lines for med administration, how much I have to learn as far as just being a nurse let alone an ICU nurse.
