Within the realm of professional nursing, emergency nursing is a specialization that focuses on providing patients with immediate medical assistance in order to prevent permanent damage or death. Not only do emergency nurses handle “true emergencies,” but they also tend to patients who come to emergency rooms because they are unable or unwilling to receive primary care elsewhere. Actually, very few patients at the emergency department (ED) have life-threatening illnesses such a heart attack, stroke, or serious injuries. In addition, emergency nurses provide care to patients who have experienced sexual assault, psychological and behavioral issues, and acute alcohol and/or substance intoxication.
Emergency department nurses see a wide range of conditions, including gunshot wounds, heart attacks, fractured bones, and auto accidents. As an emergency nurse, you will be trained to treat patients’ symptoms in the order that they pose the greatest risk to their lives after promptly triaging them based on acute evaluation and immediate observation abilities.
