Love my career but looking for the challenge of working in flight trauma....was wondering what it will take to accomplish this dream. I already have my nclex
I just accepted my first flight nurse job. I start in a couple of weeks.
The main thing that you'll need is certifications, certifications, certifications. Get your CCRN, PALS, TNCC, BTLS, PHTLS, Instructor cert in BCLS, ACLS, and PALS. That, and trauma/ICU experience are the big things that they look for.
Second, you need to get to know your local flight companies. Make calls and meet people. Actually ask the person who does the hiring to help guide you in becoming a better qualified applicant.
Good luck. I hope you find your niche.
