Hi ER nurses!
I am SO EXCITED! I just graduated last month, and I will start to work in my hometown hospital's ER in a couple of weeks!
I labored long and hard over this decision--I was pulled between Med/Surg (where all instructors tell you to go) and the ER, where I really wanted to go, where I did my preceptorship, and where I feel I will have alot of support from the other nurses.
Personally, I feel that there is NOTHING ON EARTH more cool than knowing what to do for someone in a crisis situation. I just want to be a part of that.
I know I have loads to learn, and I'm eager to get started!
I'll be reading this forum often, and seeking advice from you wise ones!
