POSITION SUMMARY

The registered nurse is responsible for assessing, evaluating, and delegating the delivery of skilled patient care.

ED nurses require a skill set that is beyond that of a traditional nurse. This skill set is specific to our environment and includes the care of a wide variety of patients. The ED nurse should be competent in caring for patients across the age continuum and requires fluid and continuous process of education, skill refinement, knowledge procurement, and risk recognition.
