Hi Everyone,

I am curious as to your thoughts on what I should do? I currently work on a busy telemetry floor, and have for about 2.5 years. I recently have been looking at positions, and received an offer from a huge teaching hospital near me as an ICU float. They would train me on the MICU, SICU, and CVICU over the course of about 9 months or so. It is a SUPER cool opportunity- they regularly have ecmo patients, are a teaching/research hospital, and known to have one of the best ICUs in the country. 

My current hospital is a union hospital, I am two years vested in a pension (at this point doesn't equal up to much, but....), but am feeling kinda bored. I love my coworkers, but don't feel challenged anymore, and have been frustrated with the administration at my hospital. This new job would be super cool but a strong learning curve. Do I go for this new job? The pay is the same, although the new position has a lower FTE. Or do I stick with my current job on a tele floor, a bit bored, but at least have seniority and am not scared out of my mind? 

Also, welcome any tips for switching from tele over to ICU!

Thank you!!!
