FlyinScot got the berries on this one.
Transport RN's do work CCT Ground, Rotor EMS (HEMS) and Fixed Wing Air Transport.
Most generally do require a min. of 3 years high acuity ED/ICU and any number of additional "qualifications".
At a minimum these qualifications:
* ACLS, PALS, NRP
* TNCC, TNATC and PHTLS
* Speciality exp in IABP, Art Lines, Vent Management, LVADS, ECMO, High Risk OB/Neo, Hemo Monitoring.
* Add speciality board certification in Emergency (CEN) and Critical Care (CCRN)
* Some demand EMT Basic or Paramedic too
* Within 12-24 months after starting most require CFRN or CTRN (www.ena.org
There are jobs out there in most areas of the country. Most are VERY competitive. But, IMHO it is the best RN job in the world.
I have 13 years as a medic and 4 1/2 as an RN. I've been working at this for a year. I was qualified, but I was a bit LUCKY too. I remain very grateful.
