What's YOUR Dream Job? - page 4
I just heard a nurse ask another nurse "What kind of nurse would you be if you could be any nurse?" So I am wondering...all you nursing students (don't even be realistic!!), if you could have any job, what would it be?? What... Read More
- 1Mar 6, '13 by ♪♫ in my ♥Quote from emerjenseeWe end up with ICU patients that we hold onto for awhile.I honestly loved each of my rotations. Each quarter as I advanced in the program I thought, "Well sure, this would be fun to do!" When I reached my 4th of 6th quarter I had the opportunity to rotate to the ER/ED three shifts and KNEW I had found my dream job!
How I chose between ICU and ED when requesting my 240hr preceptorship, I looked at my personality. Did I want 1-3 patients I had all shift who I knew EVERYTHING head to toe about? Or did I want to be in a location that I met anywhere from 12-36 patients who I only focused on the CC?
At its best, the ED is exciting, fast-paced, and offering critical care experiences without repetitiveness.
At its worst, it's boring as sin because you're dealing with yet another recovering junkie, psych hold, or constipated patient getting lactulose from both ends of the tube.
But your stable OD can quickly turn into your busy ICU patient with little warning.
Personally, I love the ED.
I'd love the autonomy, science, and money of being a CRNA, though.

- 1Apr 16 by Stella_BlueI would love to try my hand at a level one trauma teaching hospital. Ive always wanted to start out in the ED and work my way up to truama. I also think flight nursing would be really nifty. I graduate in 2 weeks and one of our last clinical days is going to a flight ED rotation. We dont get to actually fly or anything but get to get inside the helicopter and talk to the nurse's. Im looking forward to that clinical day.
- 0Apr 17 by NKS82Well my dream job is paramedic. (I think I need to explain... In my country you need to study to RN (bachelor in medicine with major in nursing), work minimum a year on ED or ICU, then you're allowed to apply to paramedic course (Postgraduate Diploma in Specialist Nursing – Prehospital Emergency Care), which will be 1,5yrs practise and theoretical studies). I'm about half way there at the moment
