No, I am not doing this for school. I have decided to take some time off before going back to school and while I have the "free time" my plan was to improve my skills to make me a better ED RN (port-a-cath access/infusion, ACLS, PALS, TNCC and then later on CEN. Doing this research paper was for my own benefit, not only to learn how to do them but also,t hey are not going to stop hiring new grads in the ED so I would like to show them how his model would work rather than the one they are using now. thank you for your input regarding new grads in the ED. It is not the first time we have heard it. I started out as an intern and when I got hired they put me in the ED. before that I was not even thinking ED. Now it is my home and I plan to stay.
