I think once you are in the ER it will become just a second nature to you, just like you never left. Good luck.
So, I had the interview this morning and got the job!!! The interesting part is that a little over 1 year ago I shadowed one of the staff members in the department when I originally considered changing facilities. The nurse manager stated that she had decided at that time to offer me a job however did not because I never really pursued it. (who'da thunk it?!?) So, pending my reference checks, I basically have a new job. YAYYYY!!! Have to complete a month in Public Health (or as my best friend calls it "public he**) due to union contract after giving my notice. Really excited here!!! They remembered me most, I think, because one of the staff members bought me dinner after I left my wallet upstairs (I of course paid him back); they have teased him about it ever since ("you couldn't even BRIBE her right" the NM joked) so I may kid hhim that NM said a condition of my employment would be my dinners purchased indefinately...
Thanks to all with good thoughts and wishes; it was really nice to see. Especially since I "lurk" often and post occasionally.
I'll keep you posted! Almost feel bad for public health as they have been VERY good to me there... but it still just doesn't ring my bell.
Thanks again everyone!

Best of luck Amy in your new old job!
Congrats! And good luck in your new job!
I am still working in the ER. Short of the story, had a bit of a hard time getting used to the way they do some things as I knew the inner workings of other hospital like the back of my hand. Still love ER, and as said by another, I AM surprised at what I learned there (public health/home care) and never even realized it! Thanks so much for your good wishes; Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you all: gotta love computer problems!

So glad you let us know you are doing fine in the new job. I thought you would have more problems adjusting to a new place than picking up your ER skills. I think we learn a little something from every position we have unless we have some of those quirkey nasal hairs blocking our brain. LOL. Glad you are enjoying the job. Keep smiling and hope you are getting a free dinner every so often.
