After about 8 months of experience, I want to try ER. It's a residency so I won't be totally thrown in with the wolves. I don't hate my current job but I do not love it either. I want to at least look forward to work- I guess you can say I sort of like it - the nursing part that is. The co-workers are okay. They are really nice and welcoming, but just not anyone I can relate to.
But anyways, to the main reason I am posting this - does a introverted person and ER nursing mix? I'm really introverted and reserved. I'm not much into random small talk unless I totally click with that person. But, I do like to talk a lot. I do like to stay busy. I sort of don't like the set schedule of floor nursing; however, things do come up. I think ER nursing will expand my knowledge, but then again I have no idea. I've never precepted or rotated in the ER during nursing school; shadowed a nurse for 1 day there.
My apologies for my rambling...So, what do you think about introverted nurses wanted to try ER?
