Emergency Room Travel Nurses
Emergency room (ER) nurses are often the very first point of contact a patient has when they enter a hospital. ER travel nurses are the ones who are responsible for quickly assessing a patient’s condition or injuries upon arrival to the emergency department (ED) of a hospital. In order to be successful, an emergency room travel nurse must pay extreme attention to detail and excel in communication with patients, family, doctors, and co-workers.
The ER nurse must be able to identify and triage a patient’s signs and symptoms and effectively communicate this information to the attending physician in a timely manner in order to get the patient the appropriate help they need. Furthermore, emergency room nurses assist in the implementation of treatment plans, IV administration, injections, medications, educating patients on prescription information, and helping with EKGs and other triage procedures.
Emergency room travel nurses need to be able to learn the ropes fast, as they must understand the specific discharge procedures of a hospital and the government policies that regulate the transferring, treating, and discharging of patients from the facility. In addition, ED nurses also need to be wonderful educators, as they are the ones who must teach patients and patients’ family members about the treatment at home after they leave the hospital. If you are a registered nurse who has a calm temperament and can work long shifts in a busy environment under stressful conditions - then working as an emergency room travel nurse might be suited for you.
Job Skills / Requirements:

ER Travel Nurse Salary and Job Outlook
Acute-care facilities across the United States always have a high demand for experienced ED nurses. Travel nurses working in emergency rooms receive higher pay than the staff nurses do, but the exact amount a traveling ER nurse makes will depend on the precise geographic location, experience level, job requirements of the facility, and if the nurse has other certifications.
