Hey MM --- I saw your earlier posting about home health and was disappointed when I found out it was closed.
Anyway, to the topic at hand, I was like you wanting to get into ICU/CCU, and had been working on a busy med-surg unit, having up to 10-11 patients each. I got pulled to ICU a few times and decided I enjoyed it. The first thing I did was to take a basic EKG/dysrythmias (excuse the spelling
!). I also had to wait for an ACLS class and the basic EKG got me ready for ACLS. I know a lot of places offer the ACLS class, the recert. class I think on the computer, but I have always done mine in the class situation. I also have some resource books that may be able to help you prepare.
Keep me posted, and pm if youd like to. Good luck!!
