Specialties PICU


I GOT THE JOB IN THE PICU MY INTERVIEW LASTED FOR TWO HOURS. I start in about three weeks I am so excited I hope my experience in the PICU will be just as rewarding as it was in my LPN career. I feel pretty lucky to be accepted in the PICU being a new grad and all. I am kinda scared but I know I will like it. The hospital I will be working for is very nice. I would appreciate any suggestions or tips on how to make my life a lil better to adjust to the PICU atmosphere.....Thanks in advance ......:roll :nurse:

Did you start your new position yet? Let us know how it is going. I'm hoping that when I finish nursing school, I too, would like to work in the PICU.

Best of luck. I just left the PICU after 20+ years. I left not because I didn't like it, I loved it, but the administrator and I just don't have the same values. I love each and every child I take care of as if it my own. In my eyes saving money is more important to her than patient care. I have transfered to the Peds ER and I'm liking it, the staff is great and very family/kid oriented. All procedures are as pain free as we can make it, we do a lot of conscious sedation. I hope you love the PICU and always remember you are being entrusted to take care of someones child. No matter how you feel about that kid, deformities,injuries,disabilities and all, the parents love that child unconditionally. Man this was deeper than I thought I would be. I love PICU nursing. If that person ever leaves I would seriously think about going back. Good Luck;)
