    It depends I guess on what you are doing at the time. There are days I feel I am doing critical care procedures and most days it is run of the mill nothings. I guess it is in your perception at the time.

    I don't believe the AACN considers the OR as a place to gain critical care experience.

    No, it is not critical care.
