What kind of patients are in the advanced surgical unit?

Published

Hello all!

I have a job interview next week for a position as a new graduate nurse in an Advanced Surgical Unit.

For the life of me, I have looked everywhere and I can't figure out what kind of patients are cared for in the Advanced Surgical Unit?

I have been a Surgical Technologist for the past 25 years and wonder if I will have the knowledge for these patients?

Thanks so much for your answers in advance!

Happy New Year,

PRNADNST

My guess is that it's a facility specific term for a type of floor. Perhaps an ICU or step-down type of unit? The facility would be the best place to get that answer.
