Emergency nurses play the role of detective —uncovering clues about a patient’s illness or injury, thinking fast on their feet and providing a reassuring smile when it’s needed most. Emergency nurses treat patients who are suffering from trauma, injury, or severe medical conditions and require urgent treatment. Since these specialists work in crises, they must be able to quickly identify the best way to stabilize patients and minimize pain.
Since 1989, the second Wednesday in October has been designated Emergency Nurses Day, when ER nurses are honored for their commitment to patient care. In 2001, the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) designated a whole week to celebrating emergency nurses for all of their contributions.
