    I started out in MICU. I too was so excited but scared. I struggled for a bit. I would go home and think "today was a good day" or "what was I thinking". I have been there almost 2 years. I was on maternity leave for 4 months of that. It worked out. I love it!!!! Just ask 1,000,000 questions everyday! Don't be afraid of sounding stupid. Get involved in everything that is going on in the unit even with other people's patients. Communicate what you are struggling with. There are a lot of great days. You will have struggles. Get to know some nurses well that you feel comfortable even asking the stuff you think you should know. Congrats! It's a great ride! It is such a great job!
