ER Nursing

I found this sign when I Google ER nursing. I thought it was funny. Some days I wish our ER had set hours. Of course it doesn't. I come from a rural hospital. I think I may have mentioned this before. We get our droves of patients though each day. Don't let the rural part fool you.

Although lately I feel like I am working in a clinic rather then a true ER. I see so many people come in for cough cold symptoms it's ridiculous. Not that I want to see bad things happen to people, but the occasional code or CPR in progress would be nice.

I am going to take a class soon. Called an MICN class. What it boils down to, is I can give the paramedics some orders when they call in for radio reports. I guess it's cool but with it comes more responsibility.
