Emergency Nursing Job

  1. Hi everyone. I have read some discussions on this particular forum Emergency Nursing) and it's pretty good. I wanted to know if anyone has started with an Emergency job with no experience in Emergency? and How was it? I was told that they would do training though. I have some Telemetry and Peds experience.

    I have posted in the Emergency Nursing forum and no one has responded. I hope someone can respond here for advice or feedback.

    Thanks in advance.

    I went to the ER (large level one trauma center) with only a year of ICU experience and one year of med-surg. My orientation was 8 weeks (that was 10 years ago). Success is dependent on the amount and quality of orientation. Depending on the type of ER (small rural versus inner city level one or somewhere in between) somewhere between 8 weeks and 16 weeks is standard. Use of the ENA orientation modules is very helpful too. What kind of ER is this? How many visits per year?
