Med-surge Nurse looking for Critical Care Training program

  1. Hello everyone.

    I was wondering if any critical Care nurses out there were trained for this specialty after having 1 yr experience as a med-surge nurse?

    Does anyone know of any California programs with Critical Care training programs for nurses with no experience, other than med surge?

    Check with the manager in CCU department of your hospital. Many times they offer cross-training to CCU for nurses from other departments. In my hospital they cross train PCU nurses to work in CCU, and usually don't cross-train nurses from other departments. But they may agree for you to get cross-trained at your own time (no pay). You may also consider reading AACN Core Curriculum for Critical Care Nursing.
