Why do I watch youtube videos of ER procedures?
I and D's, Running codes, even the occasional trauma (ever see the one about the vietnam surgeries?)
I have been floated to the ER at my local hospital (I am a CNA), but I don't know how I feel about ER nursing. I don't think that I can accurately judge what the nurses do while i'm working as a tech in the ER, and if I'll like it or not.
So I guess my question is, how do I know?
How did you know?
They always say, "oh youll know!", but I've worked on multiple units and enjoy certain aspects of each patient population, but don't have one that I love going to (Can't really judge what the RN's are doing).
In clinicals we are on a medsurg unit and it is neat (i'm the type of nerd that gets excited when my patient has a DX that is spot on with what we covered in lecture)
So how did you know?
I am also fascinated by the concept and procedure of obtaining an IO line.
