I'm a new nursing grad and never considered emergency nursing until I volunteered for NYC marathon and I absolutely loved the experience. The fast pace, the chaos of patients just pouring in and needing assessment, triage, etc. I honestly felt "alive" in that atmosphere, so now I wonder if perhaps ED nursing is for me.
I always wanted to go into critical care nursing, so now I want to consider ED as well. I wonder if the wonderful ED nurses here can tell me the good and the bad things about their jobs. In addition, what career path can you lead in the ED? I definitely want to go for MSN and DNP later on. How transferable are ED skills?
