There’s something about working as an emergency department nurse that sets you apart from the crowd.
…you like your pace fast.
If your work shoes are track shoes, you might be an ED nurse. Let’s face it, you’re fueled by adrenaline and action and life in the ED is the only thing that will quench your thirst for excitement.
“It is a huge challenge to balance the demands of the ER with the organized chaos. It takes a very special person to succeed here.”
–Diana Giacomino, RN
…you know variety is the spice of life.
And you like it extra spicy. Habanero spicy. Every day is different in the ED. Every moment brings a new challenge and a new opportunity to be your best. That’s what you’re made for.
“Every day is different. It’s not made for everyone. It’s unique because you become a master in all fields.”
— Andrew Wong, BSN, RN, CEN, CPEN, CCRN-K, Emergency Department Staff Educator
…you’re a team player.
As good as you are, you know it takes an exceptional team to make miracles happen. You wouldn’t have it any other way. Fortunately, you’ll be surrounded by the best people in the business, including physicians who are consistently named among New York’s best by New York Magazine.
…you adapt at a moment’s notice.
When it comes to handling constant changes in a dynamic setting, you’re a human chameleon. You think fast, act fast and can change fast to suit every situation.
“What’s unique about being an emergency nurse is the constant need to reassess and reevaluate your situation and the situation of your patients–in a moment’s notice.”
–Matthew Hadley, BSN, RN
…you’re always looking for the next challenge.
You never settle and you’re never satisfied. If you even had laurels, you wouldn’t rest on them. You’re inspired to always go further and reach higher in your career.
“I chose emergency nursing because I knew it was a field that would constantly challenge me.”
–Sabina Monosova, BSN, RN
