I start my job later this month. After an orientation and residency I will be permanentaly placed in the ED. What do you emergency services nurses like best about your jobs? (esp. compared to other forms of nursing)
The funny drunk people (not the ones that pee on the floor
I also love knowing whats going on in the city at any given moment, as I am an extreme closet busy-body.
Love putting all my nursing skills to use, especially love challenging IV starts.
I agree that quick turn around is also a plus. Some of the patients we send to the floor I have NO IDEA how I could tolerate for 12 hours.....not to mention the possibility of coming back to the same patients two days in a row.
Also love that I always have a story when I come home from work.... never dull.
