    this is not to much information at all, keep it coming, i'm very hungry for info. i thank you as well. quote=pinkisnoopi]i got into georgetown & i will interview at umab next month (i just applied to those 2). i'll be starting this fall (woohoo )
    also, the reasons why a certain hospital may be more open to new grads entering sicus & critical care units may be because: 1) there's simply a high demand 2) it's a large teaching hospital w/ multiple critical care units not just one 3) it's in a urban location/city where there's competition w/ other hospitals.
    in my opinion, in some ways it's much easier for a new grad to become an excellent critical care nurse. since you start nursing there, you begin to think like a icu nurse, which is very different from a floor nurse (i know, because i float to floors on occasion). sometimes, when floor nurses transition into icu nursing, it's very hard for them to change that mentality. sorry if this is too much info! :uhoh21: [/quote]

    Cooper University Hospital also has a new grad orientation. I worked in the Trauma ICU there and they had hired a couple of new grads while I was there. The other ICUs also accept new grads. Check it out.
