Starting in the ER next week!

  1. 0
    This isn't really a questions as much as a "tell me I'll be fine" kind of thing.
    I worked for less than 6 months in a busy PICU and had to move out of the area. I ended up taking an ED job, which I start next week. I was an EMT for 6 years, but not much in-hospital emergency experience. I'm just getting a little nervous about starting my new job. I guess it's mostly because of the different mindset people keep telling me about when it comes to an ICU vs. an ED.

    Thanks!

    You will do great !! Floor nursing is completely different then the ED. We are all type A personalities, and very strong personalities . It's a fun world especially because it is a team environment . Ask millions of questions ...it's okay. Ask questions ..and ask more ...I love it and can never see myself working on the floor. Take a deep breath..and have fun...

    Remember the ED is controlled chaos . As rushed you may feel ..it's okay your not alone ..and you will find that your instincts mean a million ..trust your gut ok that's all for now !

    Have a great first week !
