Emergency nursing is a dynamic discipline in which nurses are charged with caring for patients of diverse ages, cultures, backgrounds and conditions. The fast pace of the ER requires quick decision-making and a multitude of skills with the ability to perform in all areas, ranging from triage and shock rooms to suture, cast rooms and treatment areas.
