‼️New Grad Peds Cardiac ICU Nurse‼️

Posted

Specializes in Pediatric Nurse.

I recently accepted a position in a nurse residency program at my dream children’s hospital and am SO excited! I’ll be starting in the cardiac intensive care unit after graduation/NCLEX.

I am looking for any advice on starting in the ICU. I have pediatric experience, but no ICU experience. What can I do over the Summer to prepare to kill it when I start on the floor?? I want to stand out!

I have to say I am intimidated. Cardiac is so complex, and this place is one of the top cardiac centers in the country. Is there a book I can buy for pediatric cardiac to study over the Summer?

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!!
