Emergency Department NP

Posted

Hello everyone:

I'm currently an RN in New York working in relatively large, busy ED. Our department has a few Nurse Practitioners, and I'm hoping to continue to work in Emergency Medicine once I graduate from NP school.

I was hoping to find some information from members here regarding which Emergency Departments in NY use NP's in the ED, and the role they fill (i.e seeing acute patients, see "fast track" patients only, procedures, etc.) and if any had programs specifically tailored to new NP's to rapidly orient them to the role (similar to the new RN "residency" or fellowship programs offered at many hospitals.

I've called numerous HR departments, who can usually only tell me that the hospital hires NP's in general, and asking around doesn't seem to turn up much info either. Thank you all!

I know quite few ED residency programs for PAs, some might accept NPs as well.

You might have some luck by reposting this on the NY boards on all nurses as well, just FYI. Can find it under 'U.S.' at the top of the page, just click on it and find your state.

Phage you talked to the NPs in your hospital? They can likely give you the rundown on their role as well as the role of their colleagues at other local hospitals.

Your state NP association may also be a solid source of information for you. The more local contacts you meet the better off you are for getting a job from a network contact in the end.

Reposted in NY as well, thanks!

The NP's in my unit were all hired new into the role - I plan to apply for it as well once I'm an NP. I plan to attend a variety of conferences and networking events. Thanks for the advice!

Could you share the hospitals that have the ED residency programs for PA's? Thank you

Thank you all for your replies, I will look into the fellowship info provided and see if I can find some more info on my own. Some it takes quite a bit of digging!

I have an interview in November for the Carilion Clinic ED fellowship I have been pretty impressed by them so far, really hoping it goes well.
