Emergency Nurse Resume
Emergency Nursing is for fast learners and proactive specialists with an excellent eye for details as it requires competence in general medical emergencies along with cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, orthopedic and wound emergencies. One should also be an expert in shock and multi-system emergencies, genito-urinary, gastro-intestinal and facial-ocular emergencies in order to grab a job in the field of emergency nursing. Emergencies caused by substance abuse, toxicological and environmental emergencies are another specific issue, which deserves special attention.
There are Certified Emergency Nurses and Emergency Nursing Practitioners. A Certified Emergency Nurse is a Registered Nurse, who has been certified after passing the examination given by the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing. The Board recommends the candidates to have at least two years' experience in the practice of emergency nursing but it is not a mandatory requirement. The certification is valid for 4 years. After that, either recertification or completing 100 Continuing Education Units in the specialty is essential.
Emergency Nursing Practitioners are Advanced Practice Certified Nurses who assess, diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses, injuries and disease processes in emergency care locations. A specific additional focus of the Emergency Nurse Practitioner is prevention in the form of patient and family education and public health advocacy. Emergency Nursing Practitioners are trained in advanced skills such as x-ray interpretation, ophthalmic slit examination, suturing, local and regional anesthesia, fracture reduction, and so on.
