I have a question for anyone who has some experience as an ICU travel nurse:
I am 4 months from graduation, and looking to get hired into ICU, and hopefully transition to travel nursing after 2 years. If I worked in a 'lower' acuity MICU and was unable to get training and become familiar with specialized equipment like LVADs, ECCMO, and whatever other things a nurse needs to learn to use before being dropped off in a new unit.
ER isn't completely out of the question, and I assume in comparison to ICU it would be a much more standard set of skills and knowledge.
(I understand the potential difficulty of starting ICU straight out of school but don't believe this will be a problem with my background and drive. Just looking for advice for if I go down this path.)
Thanks for any insight you can give me!
