Specialties MICU

Published

Hey everyone,

I'm so happy and I wanted to share with everyone, too! I've been a tele nurse for one year in August and interviewed this week for the Critical Care Internship Program. To my delight, I was chosen and I start August 24th; I will be working in the MSICU! This has been my dream and goal for nursing since school, so I am happy and motivated to start.:yeah: I will train on days for the program and then go to nights, which I am quite nervous about since I am a "day person," but I suppose I need to start somewhere, right???

Hope you all have a great week and if you have any advice, send 'em my way!

Can't wait to join the ranks of ICU NURSES:):nurse::redbeathe

Hello moon

Much happiness directed toward you for achieving one of your goals!

I had worked about one year on a tele/step down unit (4-12) and it was tough. BUT I learned how to navigate through my own fears of not "being good enuf" and learned to appreciate and OWN my skills, knowledge, and expertise as an registered professional nurse. I have worked critical care for a few years now, but it was the skills-set that I learned while working that tele floor that I will always appreciate and the friendships I had made along the way (VISN 3)
