It’s amazing how much joy and sorrow we can feel in one day as a nurse in the Emergency Department. One minute we are taking care of a newborn with a fever, and in the next room over, you are sharing the last few minutes of life with a sick, elderly patient. It’s a breathtaking moment when you walk away from a code and/or a stressful patient situation and realize, “I sincerely gave this human being my all.”

Our Emergency Department in Midland is full of inspirational mentors, physicians, nursing coordinators, an educator, and one committed, approachable, and extraordinarily humble manager. We strive for excellence daily for patient safety and satisfaction through our shift huddles and work diligently towards our three key drivers: nurse understanding and caring, total time spent in the emergency department, and respect for patient privacy.

Orientation into this department is typically 8-12 weeks with an experienced and supportive preceptor, but is tailored specifically for each individual’s needs. Each new employee is trained to follow our commitment to co-worker pledge and taught to care for themselves as an individual through our model of nursing practice, Relationship-Based Care. There are also many opportunities for engagement like participating in the REACH program, joining our unit practice council, or getting involved in the many other councils and committees.
