A&E is Accident & Emergency in the UK -- the ED, in essence. The rest I'm not sure about ... charge nurse, maybe?

A&E is accident and emergency (ER or ED in other parts of the world).. yeah i agree with you, i think senior sister is charge nurse..

anyway, if you are applying for ED check of course for the mission and vision of the hospital and most importantly of that of A&E.. on which country are you anyway..? because during interviews they are also sometimes giving cases or scenarios.. to lessen your anxiety, make some research on what are the usual cases that hospital is catering (it might help) or handling in ER.. good luck and God bless
