Experience Required/Preferred: Prior Hospital Based Experience Required. Minimum 2 years of Emergency Department (ER) experience required.
Registered Nurses in an Emergency Department (ER/ED) position:
Work as part of a team with physicians, other nurses and healthcare professionals to provide care, monitor health conditions, plan long-term care needs, administer medicine, use medical equipment, perform minor medical operations, and advise patients and their families on illness, care and continued care after a hospital stay.
Emergency rooms are often the first line of defense for accidents, allergic reactions, and any number of urgent medical care.
ER nurses work to quickly assess the needs of each patient, prioritize care based on its critical nature, and work to stabilize a patient, treat the problem, discharge the patient after the emergency is over or make arrangements for a longer hospital stay.
JOB SKILLS AND REQUIREMENTS
Critical-Thinking Skills: Nurses will need to assess a patient's health, as well as detect changes in symptoms, health or pain, and will need to know when action is necessary.
Compassion: Nurses help people. They should be sympathetic to a patient's needs and be able to deal with people in various states of pain, trauma and tragedy.
Attention to Detail: Nurses can help doctors operate, administer medicines and work with specific treatments that, if wrong could prove fatal. Attention to detail is crucial.
Organizational Skills: Nurses will face multiple patients, with differing needs, stages of health and risks. Being organized and knowing how to prioritize will be helpful.
Calm Under Pressure: ER Nurses face urgent, life-or-death situations almost daily. Being able to function in the heat of emergency will be necessary.
Patience: Giving care under stressful circumstances requires patience.
Communication Skills: Nurses communicate directly with patients who are scared, in pain or in shock. Families will have questions and want answers. Good nurses need to be patient listeners and good communicators to help keep everyone calm and help them understand the situation.
