Hello! I am a fairly new nurse who has been working 5 months in an ICU. I started off here as a new grad straight out of school. I do not enjoy being an ICU nurse. I thought it would be exciting but I think ICU is maybe not my niche for many reasons. I do not like critical care and floor nursing. I think for my personality it is too stressful for me. I do not like dealing with codes, MTP's, patients dying all the time, and just the high stress of it. Also, I hate seeing how awfully sick the patients are in the ICU. I think i would better enjoy a place in nursing where I am not stuck with patients for 12 hours. I dont mind working 12's and I DO enjoy helping people get better, but just not in the ICU. I would more so like to know what other options are out there for me having some ICU experience. I am willing to stick it out for a year to get my 1 year experience but I CANNOT stay any longer than that. I will be out of the door by 1 year. Thanks!
