Critical Care and the new grad

Nurses Safety


Look on the General Nursing Discussion board for the topic "new nurses in ICU." I asked the same question and got quite a few responses-both for and against new nurses in specialty ares. All of the replies were honest and straightforward. Good luck!

I am a senior nursing student doing research on the new nursing graduate in the critical care role. My research question is "Should new graduate be allowed to work on a specialty unit such as the ICU, MICU, ER or any other area that is considered critical care." I would like the opinion of experinced nurses in evaluating this question. Please be as open as possible about your thoughts and feelings on the subject. Thank you for your help
