    Good luck on getting a job in the ER with no hospital time under your belt. I have been a paramedic for 13 years was a EMT for 2 years prior, I am also a RN. I can promise you that the ER is much different then the street. Not only in how it operates but also in how back you are back stabbed. In the street you count on your partner to have your back, in the ER you can count on your partner to stick a knife in it. If you are good then its even worse. Seems weak nurses both male and female will break you down to keep the higher ups from seeing just how bad they are.

    In the street you work off of standing orders, as you do in the ER, but if you get a job on the floor, you operate off of Dr's orders. That means unless the Dr orders it, you pretty much dont do it.

    I work 36 hours a week as a RN in the trauma center. I have been blessed with having some awesome co workers, it is very rare, I do trust them, but its the not the same trust I have for my guys I work with at the fire dept. I willingly put my life in their hands knowing they would give theirs to save mine.

    So in summary lol, best of luck, but dont get your feelings hurt if you dont get the ER right away.
