I agree with JTworoger.
I went to CCU as a new grad...and I only stayed about 8 months. When I took the job, I had felt confident because I had done very well in school and had been working as a CNA, and then LPN in LTC/Vent unit while in school. I knew I wanted to work in the ICU all through school. Anyways, it was just waaay too much. I left voluntarily and went to another hospital. I was doing "ok" in the unit, but was so sick to my stomach with stress every night. When I went to the other hospital, I started out in the telemetry area for about a year and a half, then I went to ICU again. The second time around was much much better for me because I was alot more comfortable in the basic skills that you need to have (time management, assessments, critical thinking, med administration, etc.)
That being said, only you can make your decision. Lots of people advised me not to take that CCU position right out of school, but I didn't listen. I do believe the best way to start out is to do at least about a yr in a Telemetry unit (ex: the step down of the unit you would eventually like to move to) and then move to the ICU.
If you choose to take the ICU gig right out of school, hopefully you will get a very long orientation and have a better time than I did. Good Luck!
