I have just started as an ER nurse extern in a level one trauma unit in a large city. If all goes well, I will be able to enter the ER nurse orientation (22 weeks) on graduation. This is a 65 bed ER and also a teaching hospital so this is an amazing opportunity.
Any tips from experienced ER nurses on how to maximize my extern experience? Also, if you have worked with an extern, what do you like them to do that makes your shift easier? What do they do that annoys you??
Thanks for your responses
