the emergency room, I would go to the telemetry unit. You will acquire more skills, and finesse your present skills more rapidly in the tele unit. Neuro is more specialized..therefore a narrower range of skills used. I have spent several years in neuro, tele, and e.r....the tele experience was the best for all around preparation for other units..Lots of e.r. is chest pain related..so, a quick assess ment, v/s, ekg, and you're an e.r. nurse! 6 months on tele and u will be ready for e.r. they may try to keep you there...it is a hard unit to staff, as the work is hard..try to have an understanding with the management that u are moving on to the the e.r. as soon as possible , if that is what u want. Is there only one hospital in your town? Towns with one or two hospitals, you have to kiss everyone's butt, cause if you p_ss anyone off, there you will be, driving 50 miles a day to the next hospital. So, keep your demands low and work on people skills and teamwork the first year or two..make those a priority. the other skills for either neuro , tele, or e.r. will come with time, but some nurses never acquire people/ communication skills or teamwork skills. Helpful hint: Whether in neuro or tele or e.r., if your patient is perspiring, think cardiac involvement..it is abnormal for a person indoors in the air conditioning to be sweating..treat as a heart attack until it is ruled out. And good luck.
