Job Description for Nurse, Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

ICU nurses work in the intensive care unit, where patients are in critical and/or rapidly worsening condition. Because of this, an ICU nurse must be even more careful and conscientious in his or her work. The patients that an ICU nurse takes care of are much more fragile than those that another type of nurse may care for. ICU nurses generally work in shifts, which are often quite long and may occur at any time of day. Any nurse needs to be alert during his or her shift, but this is especially true for an ICU nurse, since his or her patients need more immediate attention and even seconds can make a difference in patient condition.
