Hello!

I graduated from nursing school in December and took my NCLEX in February! I just accepted a nurse residency position in the ICU! I start in June. I have 1 year experience working in the ED as a nurse extern, so I am familiar with IV placements, POC lab draws, code blues, EKG, etc.

As a new grad, what are some things I can study or review before starting in the ICU in June?

Thank you!!

Lol, agreed. Search first.

But congrats and welcome! I just recommended in the next post up the AACN Essentials of Critical Care Nursing. It was one of the first ones I got and I found it a good one to jump around and reference when I needed.
