WOW!!...couldn't of said it any better guys!! Also been in the ED for 8 years...can remember wanting to do it since nursing school
13 years ago......took me a while to feel confident enough.
Sorry to repeat...but go for it!! like someone said...if it doesn't work out....at least you have some ED experience under your belt.
Along with what everyone elso said I also love the team work in the ED...I don't think a good ED can run without it.
I love the nurses and the doc's I work with.
I like the busy-ness and never knowing what could be coming through those doors...it's challenging...and it is great when a plan comes together.
I hate nurses on the floors who always complain...no matter what...good or bad.
I hate how lately the admitted patients have to wait in the busy ED for a bed . Even if it is not busy upstairs.
