Emergency Room nurses provide care for patients from various types of illness or trauma requiring emergency medical attention and must be able to recognize and effectively treat life-threatening conditions. ER Nurses provide direct and individualized nursing care to patients based on the application of scientific nursing principles and the Nurse Practice Act. Because patients need round-the-clock care, working hours include days, nights, weekends and holidays. Nurses spend considerable time walking, bending, stretching and standing, so they must follow proper body mechanics to guard against injury.

They must be able to work accurately around frequent interruptions.
