Unfortunately, our clinical never got a neuro ICU clinical rotation. So, I don't really know much about it!
My interview was just for an "ICU" internship and it turns out that this is the one they offered me.
So,I have a general idea of what a neuro ICU is like but I was wondering if someone could give me a little more information about it? Like what kind of patients are typically seen there? What kind of meds (other than mannitol :chuckle) are commonly given there? etc.
Any advice would be appreciated

Hmm... I'm kind of thinking that it's too late for that, considering I've already had the interview and they've offered me the position.
However, everyone I know who works at this hospital (including new grads that went to their neuro ICU) says it's wonderful and go on and on about it...
How do you know its too late unless you ask the person that offered you the internship? This person might even be impressed with the idea.
If you know new grads that work in this Neuro ICU, then ask them about the patients they have taken care of in the Unit.
Nothing wrong with presenting this question(s) to allnurses.com members, yet maybe best if you hear from nurses that actually work at this Neuro ICU, IMHO.
