Wink Hey, ICU nurses!

Glad to see this new forum! Who else is an ICU nurse (besides Maggie, of course!) What kind of ICU do you work in?

I work in a 20 bed trauma/surg/neuro ICU in a level 1 trauma center. I have in the past worked in a SICU/CVICU which was bigger on the bad CV stuff, liver/heart/lung transplants, and non-traumatic neuro.

I am living in a rural area and presently working per diem in a very small hospital with a Cath lab and feeling bored. The three to one ratio that has been forced on ICU nurses in my area is a real source of frustration. I am a PACU/ MICU/ SICU nurse. Have done CVICU but that and Neuro are not my tea Is it crazy that I prefer the really sick patients? I need a new challenge and I have no idea what that would be.
