I've worked ONLY as an operating room nurse/coordinator/manager for 5 + years, never having done bedside nursing. Later this month I will be leaving the OR to take a job in a level 1 trauma center high acuity major ICU as a beside ICU nurse.
Obviously this is going to be a challenge as I'm effectively going to be the equivalent of a new grad RN, but expectations will be substantially higher for me because I have 5 years nursing experience and was previously a nurse manager.
I know I'll have some unique strengths (communication, confidence Er sorta, comfort with patients) but clinically/skills wise and expectations will be working significantly against me.
Any suggestions or advice? How can I maximize my chances for success
