We are a group of passionate Emergency Department (ED) educators all working in some form in emergency medicine. We will expand as quickly as the demand does to include a range of nurses, ODP's, advanced practitioners and doctors all contributing to sharing knowledge about how we should manage patients in the Emergency Department.

As an ED nurse today there is ALOT to learn and its not an easy job, never fear there are plenty of resources here to make your job easier. If you haven't already seen it- the RCN Emergency Care Association (ECA) have produced a framework of skills and career progression for the ED nurse. Our resources will hopefully follow this and enable you to link your learning. Check out the blog explaining self development here



This website is created by passionate educators in addition to their 'normal' jobs and is done so free of charge and not for profit. Therefore, this does not intend to be your sole education source, simply an additional resource to compliment your learning and development. We recommend you are familiar with you own departments policies and procedures and use this site to assist your personal development. 

Further if you see something that doesn't seem right- get in touch and let us know- thanks for visiting.

This is slightly different to our previous podcasts-

Liz (@SisterScrappy) and I (@ashleighlowther) having a chat about how we got into being an ED Nurse and what the current situation is. This was sparked by a conversation I had with an amazing ED nurse talking about leaving the job and I found myself trying to convince...
