I am currently a cardiac pcu nurse that occasionally floats to the ICU. I have been a cardiac nurse for 3 years now and I think I'm ready for a change. I have wanted to be a nicu nurse or peds nurse since I picked nursing as my career back in high-school. I know nicu is a whole different animal and I'm terrified in that sense, but I suppose who isn't when they start a new job especially a new specialty! I am also excited to start a new journey and a new challenge.
I am looking for advice and kind of wanting to know what to expect... especially going from cardiac pcu/ICU to nicu level 2-3....
Another concern I have is starting a new specialty during covid. I'm afraid I won't get the proper training and time that I deserve due to the craziness of the pandemic (I've seen that happen to new hires at my current job)
Thank you so much for your time and helping me!!
