We just finished our group technical presentations. The interns took turns teaching each other about different equipment and/or therapies that we use here at the U. Some of the topics that were chosen were: Rapid infuser/bellmont, Leech therapy, Crash Cart/Defibrillator, Hands only CPR, and Continous Dialysis. We had a lot of fun sharing and teaching about our experiences with these therapies.

Last week we held our annual CCRN review. After one year of ICU experience you are eligible to test for the American Association of Critical Care Nurses CCRN exam. We had a great review course with over 65 of our ICU, ER, Airmed, PACU and Cath lab nurses there. 10 of those nurses were Critical Care Interns who have graduated from the CCI program in the past year. Elite performers.
