ICU vs. Experience

  1. I guess I would like to get some input on a decision I've been trying to make. Is it better to start in ICU right out of school when your pespective is fresh or to get some medical experience first? I hear some facilities like experience and some want to train new grads right out of school. What do you think?

    Depends on the manager, the staff, the culture of the unit, and the new grad himself. If you want to do ICU, go for it. If you think you'd be more comfortable working Med/Surg or Tele first do that. Good Luck
