I am currently a school nurse and before that worked for five years in urgent care. It was hospital based and we occaisionally saw chest pain and other real emergencies but of course, shipped them via ambulance to the main hospital lickedy split. I am 48 years old and I want to work in the hospital over the summer. I am thinking ER would be a good place. I like the variety, the turnover. Anyone in ER start there later in their career? I have critical care, ACLS, educator and mangagement backgrounds as well as the school nurse thing. What do you think?
