Transfering from PACU

  1. How easy is it to transfer out of PACU once you have several years of experience? Will an ER or Critical Care unit take an experienced PACU nurse - or are you "labeled" PACU forever?

    You have skills airway management, monitors, etc. We have ACLS. PALS, and I am PACU but got MY certification in Critical care instead of the CPAN.
    Sure you will have a learning cure but you build on what your experiece.
    We take ICU and ER RN's in PACU so what is the difference?
