I am a RN that left nursing for another career and have decided to try and return to healthcare after a significant absence. I am currently enrolled in a State University Refresher Course and have finished my theory portion and am awaiting my clinical placement. My biggest obstacle has been trying to reorient myself to all the new acronyms. Wow. My question today is about Rapid Response Teams. Is this the same team that would come for a code? I'm assuming so but it sounds like this is an expanded support team for not only cardiac/respiratory support. Can anyone shed more light on what to expect?PS Any other advise for getting reoriented would be welcome. I've been placed at a small rural hospital in ICU. My background comes mostly (not all-I did do a year at a very large teaching hospital in a new grad program on a specialized Med/Surg floor) from Obstetrics so I'm expecting to be wildly uncomfortable for a good while!
