    Description

    We're looking for Emergency Room RNs for an immediate travel nurse opening in Scranton, PA. The right RN should have 1-2 years recent acute care experience. Read below for more requirements.

    As an ER Travel Nurse, you will work with a diverse team of caregivers to appropriately evaluate, triage and implement care using correct procedures and physician instructions. RNs should have experience and skill caring for patients in a fast-paced, urgent and emergency environment.

    Emergency Room RNs will perform minor medical operations, advise patients and family on illnesses or injuries, and plan long-term care needs. Other responsibilities as an ER Travel Nurse include documenting medical history, checking for any allergies patients might have, obtaining patient vital signs, and monitoring patients' emotional and physical well-being.

    As an ER Travel Nurse, you should be prepared to perform the following tasks:

    • Provide basic bedside care.
    • Clean and bandage wounds.
    • Provide IV therapy.
    • Maintain supplies and medical equipment.
    • Report suspected abuse to appropriate agencies.
    ER Travel Nurses should be able to stand and walk for long periods of time, as well as bend, lean and stoop without difficulty. RNs should be able to easily lift 20 pounds. Moving or lifting of patients may require lifting of up to 50 pounds at times. Because of the fast-paced environment, Emergency Room RNs must possess good skills for coping with stress and be able to relate to people of all ages and backgrounds.


    TNCC and PALS required. Must have 5 years ER experience. Travel experience a plus. Nurses need to have a comfort level with Level 1 Trauma facilities and extremely busy EDs managing about 160-170 patients per day. Must be willing to float to units of similar acuity
