Emergency Nurses

Emergency nursing is a very challenging job. The main responsibility of emergency (ER) nurses is to provide highly skilled emergency medical care for patients. Although emergency nursing is a specialty, it incorporates almost every other nursing specialty in the profession. Emergency nurses deal with pregnant women, newborn babies, patients with cancer, children, accident victims, AIDS patients, Alzheimer's patients, the elderly, cardiac arrest patients, and psychologically disturbed and violent people. Emergency care can range from giving general nursing care to someone with a severe case of the flu, to performing life-saving procedures.
