Make a difference every single dayEmergency nurses care for people
requiring urgent treatment for medical conditions due to trauma,
illness or injury. They require the ability to quickly assess and

and fast learners who possess a knowledge of all specialties while
working with an extensive team of specialists to provide the
highest quality care. The specialty is challenging, fast-paced,
