So just a little background on me, I'm a senior in nursing school with 2 years of tech experience under my belt. 1 year on a surgical floor and 1 year in the ER at a community hospital. I'm currently in the middle of the senior practicum and was lucky enough to land a spot in the CVICU at the only level 1 trauma center in northern Virginia!
After working in the ER, I have developed a strong passion for pediatrics. I will never forget the first peds code I experienced and how badly I wished that I could follow the patient once we resuscitated him and sent him off to a hospital with a higher level of care and more resources.
Also, after my time in the CVICU, I've realized how much I love critical care. I think it would be a dream come true if I could combine these passions and work in the PICU out of nursing school. How high are my chances of achieving this? Just need some thoughts/opinions/advice!
