NATIONAL EMERGENCY NURSE’S DAY
National Emergency Nurse’s Day on the second Wednesday in October recognizes the dedication of ER nurses across the nation. We take this day to say “thank you” to the emergency room nurses for their hard work, dedication, service, and commitment. They provide unwavering care to their patients and families. Their loyalty to the emergency nursing profession does not go unnoticed.
Emergency room nurses are the first people we see when we have an accident or a medical emergency. They work hard to put us at ease and eliminate pain and discomfort. This is a day to let them know just how important they are in keeping hospitals running smoothly.
According to the CDC, per 100 persons, 45.8 visits were recorded. Since the ER nurse will be the first to see the patient, their training means the utmost to the patient. Most ER nurses earn a degree as Registered Nurse. Beyond their degree program, many nurses continue their training, advancing their skills and improving their knowledge of the ever-changing medical field. Some will specialize as well.
Statistics on ER nurses a difficult to find. However, there are over 3 million RNs in the U.S. workforce today.
