Trauma Nurse interview

  1. Hello all. I am a new member to the board. I'm a pre-nursing student in Florida.

    I'm doing a research paper (for my ENC class) on Paramedic and Trauma Nursing careers. I was hoping that I may be able to entise one or two volunteers to do an interview via e-mail (or pm... whatever you're comfortable with).

    The questionare is relatively short. I basically need to know what you love about being a Trauma Nurse, what the disadavantages are, why you chose this career, etc.

    Any volunteers?

    I could give it a try I guess:

    I have been in a level one trauma center since 1996 in various capacities: staff nurse, charge nurse and case manager. I love it because no day is ever the same. It is always very hard work and truly keeps me on my toes but I like a little chaos in my life.

    What I don't like is the current climate in the US with the uninsured, mentally ill, unstable and others in that category whereby they are second class citizens.

    Does that help? If I can be of further assistance, just PM me. Take care and welcome.

    We are a helpful bunch.

    I've been an ED nurse (and a nurse) for 5 years. Level One trauma and now working as a traveler (puts a whole new spin on trauma sometimes it seems- especially going from level one to community hospital back to level one....

    PM me if it will help.
