I have been an emergency room nurse for all but 7 years of my 40 year nursing career. During this time I've become proficient in patient assessment, cardiac monitoring, ekgs, IV starts, Lab draws including blood gases, respiratory treatments, patient teaching, and discharging patients from hospital to appropriate follow up. For seven years I was an evening house supervisor in an 80 bed hospital, learning much about dealing with employees, and people who were in stressful situations. Some of this nursing experience also focused in an emergency department that had a strong psychiatric component to it, and have become comfortable dealing with that subsection of emergency medicine.
I have a compact RN license from the state of South Carolina, though in my last job as a travel nurse I've had RN licenses from the Virgin Islands, Hawaii, and W. Virginia. I also am BLS, PALS, TNCC, ACLS, certified and for a short time had my CEN.
Competent in skills to see a patient diagnosed and safely through an emergency department. Have been exposed to several electronic medical record systems, relate well to people and am generally well liked by my patients.
