I was wondering the same thing. I am expected to graduate May of this year and sit for the boards hopefully by July. From everything I've seen in school, I think I want to work in the ICU/CCU, eventually pursuing a CRNA degree. Some nurses in my rotations have said its best to work first on a regular Med-Surg floor until you can get the hang of things, before moving to a more intensive unit, but others have said if you want to work ICU, you should try and jump right in. Does anyone have any suggestions?
