The chances of me working in a PACU/post surgical unit in May, may become a reality in a few short months. I have been researching on google and reading articles whether new grads should work in this unit. I love to learn new things and I am determined. Though, I do not know what to expect when it comes to PACU! I have job shadowed on the floor and I absolutely loved it. I have no hospital experience and I would really love to hear feedback on from any PACU nurses! Please give me insight! Or in general tips on becoming a new nurse!

If you scroll to the bottom of the page when you're in the PACU forum, you'll find a search bar that will allow you to search just within the PACU forum.

Okay thank you! I really like the second forum. Any information on PACU nursing and becoming a new grad nurse is beneficial to me. If anyone knows of any good books to prepare myself for my first year of nursing or for PACU, please let me know. 😀
