  1. Hello! Was just reading through some of the posts in this forum and came across one that expressed concerns regarding the current trend of new nurses doing ICU mostly for just a year then moving on to do CRNA or NP programs, leaving some units with a dearth of expert and highly skilled nurses. In the ICU I work at, we have a fairly good mix of senior and novice nurses; but with more experienced nurses working days than nights. For the older nurses out there still working in the intensive care setting, what made you stay and would you still recommend it to the younger nurses just starting out their critical care careers? What are the things you enjoy the most about being in critical care for so long and the things that you are not so enthusiastic about? Any advice? To the younger nurses, would you consider remaining in the critical care field as a bedside nurse?
