I am a senior nursing student getting ready to graduate, and my first job will be in the cardiac ICU. I want to spend these next few months preparing, and I was thinking that I am not too familiar with basic nursing skills such as emptying drains (I did this all in clinical, but not too much experience). My school offers a great program with videos on how to perform those basic skills, but there are so many of them that I dont know where to start!

My main question for all of those ICU nurses is: What do you suggest I review? What types of drains do you see often? Is there anything else you see often that I can look up? I want to brush up on as many skills as I can so my future unit knows they do not have to teach me everything!!
