Professional Summary

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.

Professional Experience
1998 to
Travel Nurse Amita Health Saukville, WI,
  • My name is Dan Claire, and I am applying for a position as a R.N.
  • part time of per diem in the Emergency Room.
  • I was graduated from nursing school in 1973.
  • I joke that I had straight A's, but that it was so long ago that there were only two antibiotics to remember in the pharmacy course.
  • I went to work immediately following graduation, in a small, 80 bed hospital, Noyes, in Dansville, NY.
  • I worked in the emergency room where I was the only nurse; even the doctors were on call, and not physically present unless needed.
  • I learned several things in this role, the most valuable being patient assessment.
  • What I told the doctors on the phone about the patient often made the difference in how appropriately the patient was to be treated.
  • In 1980, I was promoted to evening supervisor in the same hospital.
  • This role called for me to be a late night pharmacist, linen coordinator, obstetrical nurse back up, labor relations manager, ICU nurse, public relations person , respiratory therapist and often the eyes and ears for the doctors who still had no continued presence in the hospital after hours, unless called.
  • On the job education is a wonderful thing.
  • 1986, left Noyes Hospital and went to Park Ridge Hospital in Rochester, NY.; Now worked in a thirty bed Emergency Department with board certified Emergency Physicians.
  • This particular E.D.
  • also was again primarily a medical orientation, but with a strong psychiatric component as it was designated as a 939 hospital, the part of the mental health law that allowed police to pick up strange acting people off the street and force them to be medically evaluated.
  • Here I learned to follow disease specific treatment protocols, ordering appropriate tests and implementing appropriate interventions prior to even the physician seeing them.
  • I also found I could manage 3 or 4 acutely ill patients at the same time.
  • Assessments, EKGS, heart and respiratory monitoring, lab draws, IV therapy, wound care, stroke care, infections disease, all became part of daily life with much greater frequency than ever before.
  • At this time I also had a part time job in an inner city hospital, St Marys, and got more than enough flair for the knife and gun club atmosphere.
  • Roper was a 33 bed ER certified as a stroke and heart center.
  • The equipment changed and the Cardiac Cath Lab replaced the TPA protocol.
  • Heart attacks became a rather common site with 12 cath labs running most of the day.
  • Computerized charting caught up to me while I was there.
  • The job required the ER nurse there to be particularly self sufficient, having little help from respiratory or lab in treatments or specimen collection.
  • Learned to use TPA type drugs more frequently in the stroke setting, though brain caths were done to unplug the cerebral arteries much like the heart cath.
  • 2012, Thought I could retire.
  • However, had twins that graduated from college one year later and found I had student loans to repay.
  • Worked for Titan Travel Nursing for a year.
  • It was fun and provided both myself and for a few weeks on each assignmet, my wife a cheap form of vacation.
  • For example, I worked 13 weeks in St Croix and than 13 weeks in Hawaii.
  • However, I am getting tired of being away from my wife so much of the time so want to settle for a few more years closer to home.
  • That's why I'm applying.
  • I have BLS, ACLS, TNCC, PALS certifications.
  • Love night shifts¸but am flexible, and thank you for letting me send this letter rather than an official looking resume.
  • Hope it tells a bit more about me.
  • Since writing this version of my resume, I have continued traveling working in W Virginia and Rockhill at Piedmont Medical Center.
  • This was also a tenet hospital, so may be partially oriented to the way Tenet operates.
  • I have been exposed to computer charting from McKesson, Apollo, Epic, Cerner and have taken a Meditrain course for that computer system.
  • Thanks for y0ur consideration: Dan Claire RN.
