Interview questions for Nursing Orientation class

Posted

My name is Krista and I am working towards admittance into my local community colleges AAS in Nursing this fall and I'm taking a required Nursing Orientation class. One of my assignments is to do a short interview with an RN, and since my long term goal is to become an ER Nurse, I was wondering if anyone on this forum would like to answer the below questions (more than one response is more than welcome!). Thank you for any and all responses I receive and I look forward to learning more about emergency nursing!

2. What are your primary responsibilities?

3. What does a typical day entail?

I would say waiting tables serving drugs, NG tubes, foleys, and ivs. Goals of saving lives, keeping the orders straight and getting rid (street or floor) of the patients as quickly as possible.
