Good Afternoon Fellow RNs!
I am currently an oncology/tele med-surg RN (of 1 1/2 yrs.) hoping to interview for both a Medical ICU & Cardio Thoracic ICU nursing position. My questions are:
1.) What are some of the challenges & stressors in MICU vs. CTICU nursing?
2.) Are there more ventilated patients in MICU or CTICU?
3.) Which do you recommend as a better place to start as my 1st ICU job?
Thank you to all Responders! Look 4ward to hearing your pearls of wisdom!
