Emergency room nurses are responsible for assessing a patient's injuries or condition upon arrival. A successful emergency room nurse must have excellent attention to detail and verbal communication skills. The nurse must be able to identify signs and symptoms and communicate the assessment of the patient to the physician. The ER nurse assists in implementing treatment plans, explaining prescription information, administering IVs, medications, and injections, and conducting EKGs and other triage elements. Emergency room nurses must understand hospital discharge policies, as well as government policies on treating, transferring, and discharging patients from the hospital. When patients are being discharged from the ER, emergency room nurses must educate the patient and patient's family about home treatment. Ideal candidates for emergency room travel nurse positions combine a calm temperament with the ability to work long shifts in a stressful and busy environment.
