ER Travel Nursing

ER travel nursing can be an exciting and rewarding career path for nurses to pursue. Emergency room nurses provide critical patient care during emergency situations. Responsibilities may include treating patients who have experienced an acute injury, trauma, or an allergic reaction and assisting doctors with minor emergency surgeries. ER travel nurse jobs are available in many urgent care medical facilities and hospitals.

While every ER travel nurse job has different responsibilities, each position does have similarities to those nurses on staff. These may include:

  • Treating allergic reactions, critical trauma, or injuries
  • Cleaning wounds and drawing blood
  • Performing minor medical operations
  • Assisting the ER doctor and other medical staff with stabilizing ER patients
  • Helping to ensure patients are checked in and insurance information is collected
  • Communicating with patients and their families.

In addition to caring for emergency room and urgent care patients, ER travel nurses need to be effective communicators, remain calm under stress and pressure, and show attentiveness to the patients’ needs.
