Neuro ICU or MICU

I am a recent new grad who was offered a position with Neuro ICU and MICU. I am having difficulty deciding which one to choose. I eventually want to do CVICU but there were no positions available at the time I applied. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

Since you're a new grad, it doesn't really matter which ICU you choose. You are going to learn a TON either way, and either position would be easily transferrable to CSICU down the road. Some things that really DO matter: Which unit had the friendlier, more welcoming staff? Which nurse manager seemed more sympathetic/easier to work with?
