((To be clear the OP is not me...for those of you that messaged to ask. ))
I recognize this is an old post, I'm curious i there is an update on how the job went? Did you have acute care/critical care clinical rotations are part of your NP preparation?
I am sure you can understand how concerning posts like this are, at least on the surface, to bedside RNs, out-patient FNPs, experienced acute care FNPs, and ACNPs (along with basically anyone that might ever be a patient with a serious illness)!
1. Unless you had significant APRN clinical experience(s) in acute and critical care, you are practicing so far outside your scope that it puts you in legal jeopardy, let alone the risks to the patients under your care.
2. Anything can be learned with time: we all start somewhere and our didactic and clinical experience makes us into safe effective clinicians. The danger here is being in an environment where you lack both the education and experience while functioning in a role with unclear level of collaboration/supervision. For example, a first year medical resident (who has the education not the experience) in the ICU is dependent on the expertise of the RNs and the senior residents/attending physician while they gain experience. Unfortunately, a novice NP in this same scenario doesn't have the education, likely doesn't have the direct supervision, and has probably alienated most of the RNs.
3. All of us, OP included, as APRNs need to protect our profession/career/future, which is entirely dependent on maintaining safe, effective, quality, and cost-efficient care. Other people reading this post considering the same path as the OP, I hope will consider the danger in this route.
FWIW: I graduated as an FNP with a relative lack of acute care RN experience (about 16 months) but I did two acute care rotations in my program. I took a job in a internal medicine practice that covered our patients in the hospital. I worked for a year as an NP before I started rounding in the hospital. I spent six months rounding with a very experienced physician before I started rounding myself. If our patients were admitted to the ICU, neither of us would continue to attend them, either transferred to a intensivist or transferred to a OSH.
