What event has prepared me to work in the emergency department?

1 Answers

I've never worked in a hospital but I have had a broad experience in other nursing fields where emergencies occur and I am the only one there to initiate CPR or give emergent care with what ever interventions I had available until EMS arrives. I have to keep calm and remember my training without many resources at my finger tips. The only difference now, if I work in the ED those patients are coming to me and I will have all these resources needed to save them that I didn't have before. I am excited to learn what to do once they reach the hospital. Less

How do you handle a difficult or demanding patient when you are faced with multiple projects?

1 Answers

I stop a moment to really listen, patients want to be acknowledged! Assess their needs, ask yourself 'can I delegate this task to someone else or does it require my own knowledge?'...always be honest, patients easily pick up on things even if on the exterior they may seem indifferent to your actions. Mind your body language, it says a lot! Set realistic expectations and tell them what they can expect of you in a gentle and respectful manner (again, honesty, they can read you)! Its okay to ask a colleague for help (if appropriate), always use your resources when they are available. Less

I briefly summarized all the highlights from our conversation that I really wanted to emphasize on (my greatest qualities and best things I can offer should I be given the position). Try to bring up anything you feel you may have missed that would make you a great candidate for the position. I really emphasized on how I would be a safe nurse (I mentioned that I always ask questions, double check my work, and follow up with those involved in the plan of care of my patients or clients).
