Psych Nurse looking for Med Surg -- Resume Help

  1. 0 Hi All

    I am a new grad working in psych. I am very, very interested in getting a med/surg job and eventually getting into an emergency department (they all seem to want several years experience).

    My question is how can I utilize my psych nursing experience to my advantage to help get a med/surg job? What tasks/duties/skills/responsibilities can I hi-light that a med/surg hiring manager would find desirable?

    (Aside from being able to handle a patient with psychiatric issues.) I was thinking more along the lines of delegation, prioritization, etc.

    Can you just try directly for the emergency room? I think they would appreciate your psych experience very much. Plus, you can get your hands into the physical aspect of patient care.
