I'm a nursing student in Canada and I have spent my entire life wanting to be an ER nurse. I guess I always assumed I'd have to go work at a level 1 trauma centre in a big city because I sort of assumed rural ER s would be boring. I don't know why... People hurt themselves everywhere.
I met a new grad who works rurally (like 6 hours from nearest level 1 and 3 from the nearest small city hospital) and she said it's awesome because you get all sorts of crazy things coming in (accidents from hunting, snowmobiling, logging, etc).
So I guess my question goes to all the ER nurses out there... Which do you prefer and why? Id much prefer to live in the country, but will I be missing something when I work at a 30 bed hospital?
