    I'm an ER nurse too. We service a large catchment area. Am on nights again tonight...last night was our "revolving drunk tank" door. Everytime our EMS went out on a call they brought us one in. It was a real rosey time.

    Love to exchange or share stories or information. You may pm me at anytime.

    We opened our new ER a year ago this month. Oh yeah..census went up...But They just haven't been able to decide just exactly how many new staff we should have and what shifts they should work........Therefore we haven't gotten any yet!!!!

    It is nice however to work in a new CLEAN environment

    I've been doing ER for quite a few years. What a cool job! I did burn out, though, a few years ago after there was a merger of two other hospitals in the city where I was working, and one ER closed. Guess what? Our census nearly doubled since many who went to the smaller place didn't want to go to the "big house". And yeah, you guessed it again, we had just "downsized" our staff. More patients, less staff. #$&%#@!! I took off several months, did some cool travel stuff, and now work as a travel ER nurse. Seems to work for me for now.

    Hello all.
    I won't be starting nursing school until this fall, but ER/trauma is my goal. I've been a paramedic for 13 years and have to decided to finally become a part of the "Definative Health Care" that we rush to get our patients to within that golden hour.
    I am pretty new to this forum, but would like to make a request from all of you. I would love to have a "mentor", of sorts as I go through this new endeavor. Any hints, words of wisdom, etc... that you are willing to provide will be welcomed graciously. I know I have a lot of work ahead, but I think my EMS background will give me a leg up.
    If anyone out there is interested in keeping in touch with me as I do the nursing thing, please let me know.
