ICU Job Description

  1. Would any one here be interested in posting their job description from their resume for their work experiance as an ICU Nurse?

    Im a new grad and start working in the ICU in about 3 weeks but not aware of the extent of my duties and I need to prepare a resume this week.

    p.s. Its an honor to be a part of this profession, I just passed last week. I feel different when I go out in public and walk around........our word now carries more weight.........what we speak now is taken as solid truth.

    your experience in ccu is nill. you have nothing to place on a resume other than your education and any work you may have done prior to being a nurse. And I mean this great respect. The resume is a piece of paper describing your past experience. Sell yourself on the face to face interview. Wear regular clothes conservative, not a uniform. have a letter of recommendation from your critical care instructor. review your critical handbook, so that, you can talk the language. A-line/swan-ganz/ triple luman cath/ Iabp/ Prepare intelligent questions, what is the patient to nurse ratio/ what level of critical care is the unit/ what type of patients are the great part of the population in the unit/ how accessable are the physicians in an emergency/ does the hospital allow time for ongoing education. This is just my opinion. Good luck on your venture and welcome to the critical nurse family. We are a special breed.
