Hi everyone,

I have been recently offered job offers from CVICU and Float pool.  Both offers are from the same hospital which is a level 1 trauma center. The float pool would range from MICU, NSICU, TICU, CVICU, CCU, ED, and MSICU.  I have previous 2 years experience in Neuro ICU from another level 1 trauma center and have had little experience floating there.  I am wanting to expand my knowledge before applying to Grad school for either my NP or CRNA. Which offer should I take? 

Thanks in advance

Agree. For obvious reasons float nurses generally receive the more stable patients on a unit. You want the exact opposite of that. Take all the CVICU disasters you can.
