Hey Everyone,

I'm new to the forum so please forgive me if I didn't present correctly but I need some insight. I am an experienced nurse. I've been doing peds CTICU for five years now and I have seemed to plateaued. I want to change specialties. I have been offered a positions in the CCU, CTICU, and SICU. I'm having a hard time deciding. I want to go back for an advanced degree eventually so I want to chose the unit that would be most beneficial to me. As an experienced nurse, which would you choose? Thanks in advance for answering.

Honestly depends on what advanced degree you're looking at. If you want a well rounded ICU experience where you will see a large variety of stuff I would suggest SICU, but CTICU is still a great place to learn as well. Really depends on what you will be happy with.
