What are other options for an ER nurse with 1 year experience? I love to tx medical pt. My last ER had many aggressive psych pts & security took 10 mins to arrive. I was burnt out. I declined other ERs b/c of similar work conditions & lack of pay.

My advice to you is spend at least 3 years on a med/surg floor to ĺearn everything you can about people, pathology, and process....I have been an ER nurse, trauma nurse, combat trauma nurse for 33 years......for the love of God you did not come from the new grad womb knowing seriously....ANYTHING.....Please go back and learn what it is and means to take CARE of people...

And as far as "lack of pay".....suck it up took me 33 years to even remotely earn my worth.
