ICU is the place for me!
Staff RN, Tenet Healthcare, Critical Care (CA) (Current Employee) – California – August 25, 2016
I absolutely love and am passionate about working in ICU.
A typical day in ICU may include monitoring a ventilated client, starting IVs, and assisting in a "Code Blue" situation, to say the least.
I have learned countless skills and am better able to utilize my attention to detail, history in teaching, and strong critical thinking.
A good manager brings out the best in his/her staff.
ICU has an understood culture that we automatically assist each other, especially if a client's condition is declining.
The hardest part of ICU is seeing families so broken hearted about the loss of their loved ones.
I enjoy the complexity of ICU client care, decision making, collaborating with surgeons and intensivists, assisting with bedside procedures, and using my natural talent and training to provide the best client outcomes possible.
Constantly learning and growing!
Clients sometimes are so ill that they pass away.
