New hires get 10 days on the non critical side. You then work independantly there for about 6 months or so. Then you get one day of classroom and 10 more days with a preceptor on the trauma/critical side. That's it. 20 shifts on the floor and one in the classroom.
I do like the idea of floating around. That's a great way to learn and get perspective from other people/depts.
