    Calling all new grads/new to the ICU starting Feb. 2013!!!!

    so these past two weeks have been crazy busy! learning lots and was searching for resources for vasoactives and I found this which covers basic hemodynamics and seems helpful, thought I would share... https://allnurses.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=6985&d=1234829469 8 more weeks untill they let me loose!

    I don't start my orientation until a couple of weeks so I think I'm going to start reading the ICU book tomorrow in conjunction with the ICUfaqs. How long has a taken you to read the ICU book?? I'm super excited, yet nervous!

    Someone else posted this on another thread, critical care tutorials. I think it may be useful... Welcome to Critical Care Medicine Tutorials

    Another resource I just stumbled upon is the Auscultation Assistant website, it has samples of all heart and breath sounds, The Auscultation Assistant - Hear Heart Murmurs, Heart Sounds, and Breath Sounds Feel free to share any other resources you guys may have!

    I forgot to mention there is also an app called Critical Guide, its $10 and well worth the money! very simple formatting but do understand what your saying about not wanting to be on your phone while at work, especially being the new person!

    It would be great if we kept this going throughout our orientations and starting off on our own! Maybe we can also share new things that we've learned that we probably didn't in school. The Kathy white app I believe is roughly $30 and there is a small binder form that cost $40 which I like better. Esme's Idea is a really good idea, I may have to try it. what ICU will you be starting on?

    The nurse that does the podcast also has a blog, seems really helpful! Here is the linkhttp://newnurseblog.com/about/

    I really hope I luck out like you and get a great preceptor, I think it will make all the difference! I purchased the books you mentioned above as well as the ICUfaq book on marks website. I also purchased: -Kathy whites critical care app (kind of pricey for an app but totally worth it!) -the ICU book (geared towards physicians but heard great things) -Manual of critical care -critical care made easy I also downloaded these podcasts which are fantastic! -The new nurse podcast -ICU rounds -EMcrit Before I start I think I just may look over basic things and go heavier when I start orientation.

    Nights is definitely going to be a huge adjustment! 3 days a week of working nights and then 4 off which I feel I would use one of those days off sleeping most of the time, there goes a wasted day off! However, as mentioned, I think there will be a little less pressure.

    I see from a previous post you graduated! So what have you done to prepare for the ICU? I'm definitely a little scared but I think that's normal.

    I am a BSN graduate. By internship do you mean you are still a student?I did my preceptorship in a large cardiac ICU and loved it! However, I am glad I was placed in the MICU/SICU in order to gain a broad knowledge base rather than just limit myself to one specialty area.
