Welcome to the ICU

Welcome to the ICU! We're happy to have you here. Not only are you going to ease our staffing issues, but hopefully you'll be here to take care of me when I need care. I'm looking forward to teaching you what I know, and I'm hoping to learn from you as well. I have never ever had an orientee who failed to teach me something!

Interesting to get insight into the eyes of a more experienced nurse and their views of the new grads in the ICU. After only two years in the PICU after graduation (and here to stay) we have not hired any new grads, but there are some coming this summer so I will be keeping this story in the back of my mind the entire time.

Thank you for putting into words the many thoughts that have been going through my head for many years!
