Nurses General Nursing


I just registered for college but am still undecided, however, i am very interested in emergency nursing as well as forensic science. If anyone is in these areas of either ER nursing or forensic nursing, please let me know what your job is like and also if you enjoy it or not.

Thanks so much for your help!


I've been an ER nurse for over 20 years now and I love it. You get to do some of everything-from minor illness and injury to major illness and injury and with all age groups from precipitous delivery and neonates to geriatrics. There are real "teaching moments" almost on a daily basis. If you get the chance, I would suggest you work as a tech in an ER to get a good view of what it's like. It's difficult work (as is all nursing) but I've never had two days that were the same. Good luck!
