Nursing work at the Emergency Room (ER)

The interviewee is Eric Johnson, a Registered Nurse (RN) in the Emergency Room (ER) of Toledo Hospital. He has been an ER RN for seven (7) years now. Scheduling the interview with him was challenging, as nurses work many hours, and Eric managed to allot a small amount of time for the interview because the interviewer is his friend.

What kind of education/certification/experience does the nurse have?

Nursing work in the ER is a specialization by itself. Thus, ER nurses are given continuous education, certification to different areas of nursing expertise specific to ER work, and the experience itself in the ER is worthy enough for a nurse to be experienced in different aspects of technical/medical hospital work. Formally, the interviewee has been trained in basic life support, advanced cardiac life support, neonatal advanced life support, pediatric advanced life support, intravenous therapy, training for emergency room. Hospital work itself is a continuing education for ER RNs: they have a monthly lecture and two (2) weeks of hands-on duty.

What kind of orientation or mentorship did the nurse receive in transition to his role as an RN?

The interviewee was hired specifically as an ER nurse. Thus, he did not undergo a transition; however, the process in the hospital he works in is that for nurses who are already in a ward of the hospital, he/she has to have a year of experience to be able to transfer to ER. The one-year period enables the nurses to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge and skills needed in ER nurses.

This process is actually a reflection of how ER nurses need to be more knowledgeable and skilled because of the critical role that they play in delivering healthcare service in the shortest period of time and/or in the direst circumstances.

What are the responsibilities of the nurse in his current position? Who does he work as a part of their multidisciplinary health team?
