ICU Nursing

  1. icu nursing

    today, i finished my two week orientation at my new place of employment. next week i start the critical care courses required icu nursing. the hospital is paying for these courses and paying me my salary.

    today, i was in the icu, they assigned us to a nurse and patient. i helped with the medications and assisted with assessing the patient. it was a good experience.

    i have heard of the expectations for the courses. they are pretty high. you need a eighty percent average to pass. it is going to be a very busy ten week course. i don't know if i can do this. i will see. today, i heard a few negative things that can turn me off.
