Moving from community ED to level 1?

Kristy Kristy (New) New Nurse

Kristy has 4 years experience.

I'm a new to specialty nurse, and I'm looking forward to starting my first job at a community ED. However, what I really want to do is get ready to be an ED travel RN, and I'm a little worried that working in the community ED for a few years won't provide me all the experience I might need to be good at that. 

I'm thinking that it might be a good idea to get comfortable in the community ED first, and then try to transfer to a level 1 or level 2 trauma center, since they usually have more resources and training available. What would you recommend?
