Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room?

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in Winfield:
"Stressful but rewarding."
Pros: Environment, helping other, service to others.
Cons: Stress,

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in Tampa:
"Talented, dedicated, and team oriented."
Pros: I enjoy working with my co-workers... We work together, as a team, to support our community's medical needs.
Cons: For the past 6 weeks our ER has been flooded with patients making wait times much longer. People get cranky when they feel bad - not to mention waiting sometimes hours in uncomfortable chairs with other sick strangers sitting next to them. It's difficult at times to be kind and understanding of people who are rude, yelling, and demanding things of you.

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in Covington:
"Random thoughts."
Pros: Doing something that saves someone's life, or educates them, changes them, makes them better in some way. Working as a team in a stressful environment. The variety of work we do from the banal doctor's office stuff to the 'that's stranger than fiction' stuff to the critical life-and-death stuff. Working only three days a week. Being hands-on (IVs, tubes, drains, etc). Getting overtime or extra pay basically at will. Working days, evenings, nights, whatever shift that floats your boat. The ease of trading around shifts. Working with docs and APRNs all day means I pretty much never have to go to the doctor myself anymore. Sometimes, when we're not too busy, the ED can be the most fun place in the world. And it generates better stories than your job.
Cons: No lunch. No bathroom break. No breaks, period. Ignorant patients and visitors who treat the ED like a McDonald's drive thru. Bed bugs and other nasties. 12-hour shifts. Lazy or nasty coworkers who aren't team players. Being short (staffed). Violent psych patients. The threat of weapons. Busy EDs and long wait times. Getting called "honey" and "baby" and other disrespectful, unprofessional names by patients and visitors. Seeing the same patients with the same shitty (nonexistent) coping skills all the time. Heroin. Days when I'm at work and I probably feel worse than half of my patients. EDs NEVER have windows. Getting injured lifting a 400+lb patient or pulling an OD out of the back of a car. Working weekends and holidays. With my MSN I am paid the EXACT SAME hourly rate as an ADN with the same hire date.

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in Providence:
"Exciting and fast pace."
Pros: The learning of many things.
Cons: The hours.

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in McAllen:

Cons:

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in El Paso:
Pros: The rush.
Cons: Pack of consistency.

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room in Springfield:
"Cox South ER."
Pros: Saving lives!
