Double, triple ditto....BUT I would encourage you try Ortho/postop. trauma.
Ortho in particular is a nice easement into nursing. My FAVORITE part is they almost NEVER CODE!! We had dustbunnies under our cart at times.
About a third would be your regular folks in for elective joint replacement. They have all the usual medical stuff other people that age hav, so you get the blood sugars etc. With the trauma patients you get surgery, observation, LOTS of dressings, cutting edge procedures....this is iin a trauma center I mean.
I REALLY wouldn't suggest a "unit-ICU CCU" just yet. Dip your toes into the water carefully and don't get in over your head.
