Trauma nurses work with patients that require immediate urgent care, often in critical situations in emergency room settings. They are trained to work quickly and efficiently, being able to remain calm in highly stressful environments. A vital component of the role is the ability to prioritise and help with triage as well as admission of patients needing immediate care. They work hand in hand with the doctors assisting patients and must be able to communicate effectively with patient’s families.

Trauma nurses should be ALS of ACLS trained and additional Trauma Diplomas are highly valued. As a trauma nurse, you want to work in a unit that has the right team, structure, and size for you.
