I want to apply for an emergency Room tech position. I want to know a little more on the daily routine of an ER Tech. Other than a few weeks of my CNA, EKG and phlebotomy externships I don't have any experience in healthcare. Can working in the ER be really stressful? I'm worried that I won't be able to focus and work well under pressure, but I really want to work in the ER! Around how many patient do you have at a time? How long does it take for a new employee to get comfortable working on their own? Also, what are some supplies that will be essential to carry around with me when working ER? Stethoscope, bandage scissors, etc.
I appreciate all the comments!
