ICU RNs are a vital thread inside the complex tapestry of healthcare. Nurses are the heart of a facility; they provide care for the most critical and fragile patients, specializing in delivering care from within a high-stress environment. Patients are experiencing crises; some are even battling for their lives. ICU RNs are the ones standing at their bedsides day and night.

As part of an elite group of healthcare professionals, ICU RNs are highly trained in critical thinking, problem solving, and using specialized equipment to help promote the healing of patients. They are also experts in communicating crucial, potentially life-saving details.

The ability to make split-second decisions as an ICU nurse is imperative. Patients and families rely on their level of expertise. Navigating moral and ethical dilemmas, collaborating with other healthcare professionals to make important clinical decisions, and making keen assessments are integral parts of care that these nurses provide daily.

Working on CareRev’s platform helps connect knowledgeable, local ICU RNs with healthcare facilities with a need for this level of expertise on demand. The platform partnership also allows these professionals to take command of their careers so that they can recharge each day and return to the bedside prepared to deliver excellent patient care.
