    I am DOING IT!!

    Well, I wrote back a few months ago about transferring into ED with a history of acute care, critical care and leadership. I finally made the decision to do it!! My last day will be 4/3 in leadership and I’ll be starting in ED right at the peak of all this COVID craziness...awesome!! LOL any tips for a newbie (not a new nurse, 10 years nurse)??

    Transfer into ED

    Luckily (I think). I’ve been away from bedside for a few years. So I’ve pretty much forgotten my processes. Haha

    Transfer into ED

    JKL33, Thank you for your perspective. There will definitely be a learning curve. I fully accept that I will feel like a fish out of water even with 10 years of nursing experience.

    Transfer into ED

    I’ve been a nurse for 10 years now. I’ve done a lot: Med surg, Tele, cvicu, NVICU, neuro...I’m sure more. I’ve been in management a few years now and boy that’s not as much fun as I always pictured. I digress, I’ve been considering a transfer into ED. Anyone have similar years of experience transfer? How complicated was it for you?? What was your biggest learning opportunity or challenge?

    I finished their MSN Leadership in May and took a new position as a Nurse Clinician which at my facility is the educator plus.

    "How did that get there?"

    The hospital phone. Half a norco I forgot to waste.

    Career advice.. Administrator - Home Health?

    So, I had the same exact thing happen to me. I submitted a regular application and they hired me to be the ADON. I was estactic. Until I realized that I was salary...working 60-80 hours a week or more because I had to fill in every time there was a call in. I also had all my office duties to do. It was too much for me. I lasted a few months and quit. I didn't want management experience "that" bad to kill myself. Plus, I didn't feel like I was learning any valuable management skills because I spent too much time working in the homes. I hope your situation works out better than mine did.

    How long did it take you? Did you have management/financial background? Any words of wisdom for getting through the classes faster? What kind of changes were made from "old" to "new"?
