Emergency Room Nurse
Emergency room nurses typically work in the emergency department of hospitals and care for patients who require urgent medical attention for conditions, illnesses, or trauma causing a potential threat to life or limb. They may also see patients who require minor procedures, treatment for allergic reactions, work in an urgent care clinic, and care for patients across the age spectrum.
An emergency room nurse has the ability to think critically and quickly, triaging and prioritizing care based on patients’ symptoms and/or conditions. A patient in the emergency room may be treated and then be discharged home, may require admission to the hospital, or need to be stabilized and transferred to a larger care facility or specialty center.
Emergency room RNs work closely with physicians, nurse practitioners, and other members of the interdisciplinary team, and are the first line of treatment for patients presenting to the hospital.
These nurses are trained in critical care/emergency room nursing, trauma nursing, and often have trauma/critical care training in pediatrics. Some ER nurses are cross-trained in ICU or other areas, especially in smaller hospitals/communities.
