    THANK YOU!!! :kiss That was more recognition than the hospital is providing. They're not doing any thing for us and neither are the MDs.

    I'm not an Emergency Department Nurse (or any nurse, for that matter! Just a pre-nursing student!) but I wanted to wish all of you guys a Happy ED week! Hopefully you will get some kind of special recognition. If not, just know that other people (like myself!) do really apreciate all of the hard work you all put in, so THANKS! :smiley_aa

    Our WONDERFUL nurse educator has had posters up for well over a month and we have fantastic drug reps providing us lunch (and midnight lunch) and some "goodies", I think our EMS brings us lunch and our ED department (not sure who is behind it) is giving us big lunch today (IT IS EMERGENCY NURSES DAY ) and a chance to win a Littman Stethoscope

    I am very blessed:spin:

    Is it Emergency NURSES week? The printed flyer in our nursing station includes all ER staff, not just nurses. And that's IT btw. Is it THIS week?

    Sigh - just came off a mega-shift from hell (in triage - can you see the sign on my forehead?) and to top it off, found out one of our team got fired (yep RN).


    Pray for me - sit my CEN tomorrow and am exhausted, downhearted and sleepy.

    Grats to all you great ER nurses - hell if I know how we do it some days.
