Recent grad entering the CVICU, nursing, and critical care nursing for the first time.
1) any recommendations on how to be successful?
2) any recommended resources to pass the CCRN. I will not be even considering taking until at least a year or two in. Just wanted good reading/learning material for the job as well.
3) how to get past the intimidation of taking care of really sick patients, while juggling another, monitoring the proper lab values, administering the correct fluids/medications, all while not killing someone.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
