Nursing student ICU clinical rotation

Hello all,

my name is Kelsie and I am a 3rd semester nursing student. I was recently accepted into a preceptorship program and was placed on a ICU floor. I am wondering if any of you guys have any advice or tips to help me make this a more rewarding experience. The experience I have has been on medsurg floors. Thank you in advance for any help.

Brush up on lab values, and try to see as many procedures/devices as you can! Come in with a positive attitude, ask questions (at appropriate times) and be helpful with the small stuff (turns, oral care/hygiene, restocking supplies) and the nurses will hopefully help you get as many experiences as possible. 
good luck!
