The PCU is a combined Med-Surg/ICU, acuity adjustable unit. This nurse would be responsible for providing assessment, planning, monitoring, and intervention for a patient population which includes seriously or critically ill cardiac, medical and surgical patients of various ages, as well as intermediate PCU level of care depending on the census. Providing care for non ICU level pediatric population age greater than 5 years old is a possibility. The nurse also provides Level 1 Post Anesthesia Care for surgical patients during hours when the PACU is not operational.

Critical care nurses (CCU RNs) assist in the treatment of acutely ill patients with life-threatening conditions, in settings requiring continuous vigilance, complex assessment, and high-intensity therapies and interventions. Working with the patients and their families, ICU RNs strive to create healing, humane and caring environments while also focusing on patient advocacy, working in settings such as intensive care units and cardiac care units, where patients require complex assessment, high-intensity therapies and interventions, and continuous nursing vigilance.
