Which ICU is best for CRNA? With so many different ICU positions to choose from, it can be challenging to find the placement that is going to serve your future CRNA path the best.

While it’s not possible to gain all your experience in one unit, there are steps you can take to ensure that your ICU experience puts you head and shoulders above other candidates as you apply to school. 

In today’s episode, we dive into: 

  • How to research your particular school’s preferences and requirements for ICU experience (Spoiler Alert- You’re going to want to go ahead and start this process now!)

  • Understanding why schools choose the requirements they choose (and why they don’t often make exceptions)

  • Ensuring you get high acuity ICU experience

  • The right questions to ask when you are interviewing for ICU placements 

  • The differences between NICU and PICU experience and adult ICU experience 

  • Units that may be problematic if CRNA is your dream 

  • How to optimize and leverage your ICU experience to help you stand out as a highly qualified candidate 

Enjoy, and cheers to your journey!
