Stella_Blue specializes in Emergency Nursing.

I started out as a LPN in 2012. I then obtained my ASN 2 years later, and my BSN about 2 years after that. I then slowly moved my way to my dream job of the emergency room. It took me almost 3 years, but I never gave up. I worked LTC for a few months, as well as a cardiac/progressive care unit. My PCU unit specialized in PCI interventions, so I naturally love cardiac workups in the ER. I eventually plan on obtaining my CNS, but this is a 10-15 year goal for me.

    To Travel or Not?

    I'm looking for advice from any travelers out there. I've worked ER for almost 2 years now, with a prior 2 years of acute care experiance on top of that. I also have to LTC experience, but I know that doesnt exactly apply to what I want. I'm thinking of traveling specifically to ER's. My question is bow has traveling been for you so far? I've been friends with travelers and they either love or hate it. I dont have any kids so I'm able to anywhere luckily (I'll just miss my boyfriend and dog ) I've heard that taxes and insurances can be a pain in the you know what. Is finding a gig or an agent as easy as a Google search? I've been considering doing this after maybe another 6 months or year or experiance in the ED. I currently work a smaller 15 bed ED of a descent sized town. Stroke and MI certified, so we at least see some things, but not a lot of trauma patients. They are either flown immediately or in and out within 20 minutes. I have ACLS, PALS, and am working on TNCC. One of my biggest reasonings for wanting to do this is I want to relocate so badly, but cant get my boyfriend on board. I think doing this will help broaden or maybe narrow down where it is I would like to settle to. Not to mention I could potentially make good money and learn new dynamics while doing so. Any feedback would be appreciated. The only thing I'm not willing to compromise on is leaving the ER. It took me 3 years to get there and I love it!!

    PVT IS DEAD! Don't try the "new" trick

    I would never repay without getting my "actual" results. Luckily I did get the good pop up, and it put my mind at ease, but I knew I wasn't out of the ball park yet. In my state I was lucky enough to have my license number posted about 24 hours later, so I never even payed for the quick results. I figured looking at my license number was good enough
