    Wow, I worked as a nurse apprentice in an ED that had a trauma center. I am also about to start a New graduate program in an ED. I remember being soooo facinated by trauma nursing. The teamwork you guys display is amazing . I think that is wonderful they have a program like that! I want to get my TNCC, CEN, and CCRN in the near future!

    Newer grad here I took a clinic job for 10 months and landed my first hospital job just recently.

    Level 1 ER, 4 months orientation, classroom learning and certificates included...

    Not very far in, but it is definitely possible!

    I was hired as a new grad in to the ED. Just over 4 months of orientation. It didn't really include an organized classroom component but my preceptor was fantastic.
