What does it take to become an ER nurse?

I am interested in possibly becoming an er nurse but am curious if it involves more or less schooling than an RN #nurse #emergency-medicine #nursing #hospital-and-health-care

All RNs require the same amount of schooling (either an ASN or BSN). There is no extra schooling required for any specialties at this level of practice. I do recommend the BSN as most hospitals prefer this for new grads.

To begin, you will need to enroll in a nursing program and the way most hospitals are headed a BSN is the best route since most hospitals are magnet or looking to become magnet. Also, the school you anticipate to attend, look into their clinical rotations seeing if ER is an option. While you are attending nursing school, network with the ED nurses and managers at the hospitals you would like to work via LinkedIn, Facebook or meetup and get your name in front of them. Also, while you are in nursing school see if you can volunteer or get with your department dean and see which hospitals they have connections with and take that route in connecting with people. Good luck to you and wish you the best. Best, Rehana
