MICU tips?

  1. I'm a new grad who just got hired in an MICU. I don't start for about another month or so. In the mean time I thought I would see if anyone has any pointers for me. What are the most common drugs in this setting that I should familiarize myself with? Most common diagnoses in the MICU? Anything you might suggest I study up on?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Ask your nurse manager or educator to set up an account with the AACN and take the ECCO course. That will give a good overview on the environment and also help you find out what you are comfortable with and what you need to spend more time studying.
    icufaqs.org is a great website. so is nurse bob's micu-ccu survival guide, not sure of the url.
