NU2ICU V3 logoPRETEST 2- PROCESS

Stuff you’ll probably need to look up before starting or as soon as possible in ICU

(a general understanding is all you should seek)

NU2ICU wants you to hit the ground at a strong pace (running is a huge expectation) so avoid being too hard on yourself.  Look around at many of the staff you work with, they worked there when the place was built and know all the secrets.

Your new, intelligent, keen and willing to learn – no one will ever expect as much of you as YOU do!
