Trauma Nurse at a Glance
Trauma Nurses specialize in treating and diagnosing traumatic injuries or illnesses that put their patient’s bodies and lives at immediate risk of physical duress. The word “trauma” refers to a disturbing or distressing experience. Because of the unpredictable and often critical nature of these cases, Trauma Nurses must have innately high-functioning processing skills in consistently challenging and chaotic situations. In addition to being able to emotionally and clinically handle each case, Trauma Nurses need to be proficient multitaskers, communicating with their colleagues as they work to stabilize their patient. If you’re looking for a fast-paced career in medicine where you’ll learn to assess and treat a wide variety of highly critical cases, then Trauma Nursing might be just the right path for you.
