5 Ways to Deal with Pre Shift Stress

Anyone who has worked long shifts like nurses and doctors knows that it’s stressful. And as human beings, we try to avoid stress at all costs, even if it means stressing out about how to avoid the stress. But that’s stupid right? We get caught in a vicious cycle of stressing about stress instead of just taking a deep breath and pushing forward. 

I especially noticed these moments of panic prior to working my shift. From the moment I opened my eyes to the second I walked onto my unit and beyond, I could feel the panic rising in me for no particular reason. At the end of the day, nothing horrible had ever happened and I just ended up feeling silly just to wake up the next morning and start the whole cycle over again. 

So how can we avoid this stress? There are some small things you can start doing NOW to prevent this cycle happening to YOU. 

1. Get enough sleep

This is obvious but waking up feeling well rested and ready to go is a lot less stressful than waking up exhausted and facing a 12 hour shift without enough rest 

2. Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or other favorite drink when you first get up

Some people SWEAR by coffee in the morning and sitting and enjoying that first cup, but it can really apply to any favorite drink. Make some tea, drink your energy drink, or make some hot cocoa, sit down for a moment and enjoy it! 

3. Eat a good breakfast and pack a good lunch and snacks you can look forward to

This is another more obvious one. If you’re hungry and your blood sugar is low, you’ll feel worse which, during a long shift, can make you feel anxious or tired. So have some good things to eat you can grab throughout the day! 

4. Repeat positive affirmations

Repeating positive affirmations every day really helps you shift your mindset. Repeating these in the morning before work can help stop the anxiety spiral in its tracks. 

5. Journal about your why

Journal about all the reasons you love your work. You can do this once and review the list every morning or write a new one every day. Just write every positive thought about your work and nursing down and read it a few times. 

Do these before your next shift and when you’re feeling that spiral start so you stop it in its tracks.

  • What You Will Do: Emergency Room Nurses specialize in caring for people who are in medical crisis. These nurses are trained to quickly assess patients’ needs and treat or triage them accordingly. Emergency room nurses are used to a fast paced, high stress environment
  • Where You will Work: Most Emergency room nurses work in the emergency department of any hospital. They are licenses RNs so they do have the option to work in most any other department as well.
  • Employment Projections: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of Registered nurses in general are projected to grow 16 percent from 2014-2024
  • How Much Will You Earn: On average between $20.40-$38.65 per hour
  • How Long Does it Take to Become an ER Nurse: 6 Years, 4 years at an accredited school of Nursing and an additional 2 years of experience in the ER to become certified.

Five Steps to Become A Certified Emergency Nurse

  1. Earn Your ASN or BSN: To become a CEN a nurse must attend an accredited college or university and earn an Associate of Science in Nursing or Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
  2. Pass the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) for RN
  3. Work as RN for a minimum of 2 years in ER setting prior to being certified
  4. Pass the ER Nurse Certification: create a BCEN account and register for the certification exam online. The cost of the exam is $370 for the initial exam and $350 for recertification which is due every 4 years.
  5. Become Board Certified: More than 34,000 nurses working in the emergency department hold a CEN certification, though certification is not a requirement in most facilities

If you or a family member has been in a car accident, suffered from a heart attack or stroke, or needed IV fluids due to the stomach flu, chances are the Emergency Room (ER) nurse is one of the first people you encountered after arriving in the emergency department.  These nurses take care of patients suffering from all types of maladies, from traumas, to respiratory arrest, to food poisoning, to ear infections.

What is an Emergency Room (ER) Nurse

An ER nurse is an RN who is employed in an emergency setting. These nurses, after paramedics and EMTs, are the first staff to care for a patient in an emergent situation. They are highly skilled and highly educated – they never know what type of patient will walk through the door or arrive via EMS, so they must have a vast knowledge of all types of illnesses.  According to Johnson & Johnson, “these nurses quickly recognize life-threatening problems and are trained to help solve them on the spot.”

What Does an ER Nurse Do

Describing the day-to-day duties of an ER RN is difficult because it is highly dependent on the patients that present to the ER.  The severity of patients and the amount of patients in a shift varies.  For example, a trauma situation may present to the ER after a car accident and the nurse will be busy stabilizing their patients, sending them for CT scans and x-rays, and preparing them for the OR.  A shift may pass with an infant with an unexplained fever, an adolescent with a broken bone due to a hockey injury, or an elderly person brought in by their children due to confusion caused by a UTI.  On the day-to-day basis, the RNs primary responsibility is ultimately caring for their patients, no matter what situation they present to the ER with.

How To Become an Emergency Room Nurse

The type of nursing degree required to be an RN in an emergency department will depend on the job description of the hospital of employment. However, according to the Houston Chronicle, the minimum degree required of most hospitals is an ADN. Some ERs require their nurses to have prior experience, such as on a general Med Surg unit, prior to employment.  However, others will hire a new graduate.  If you’re desiring a job in an ER after graduation, select clinical rotations in the ER or another critical care area if possible. Doing this will allow you to meet and network with other ER nurses and to learn excellent nursing skills, such as triage, emergency skills and IV insertion.

What Are Emergency Room Nurse Salaries

According Payscale.com, an ER Trauma nurse can expect to earn between $20.40-$38.65 per hour, this is an average wage of about $60,000. Salary.com states as of July 2018 the average wage of an Emergency Room nurse is $72,832. Salary range is contingent on education, certification, skills and experience.

What is the Job Outlook for an Emergency Room Nurse

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, nursing in general is expected to grow by 16% from 2014 to 2024 – this is a higher than average growth rate.  As there will always be a need for nursing to take care of patients in emergency situations, the job outlook for the ER RN can reasonably be expected to increase at about the same rate.

    What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

    Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

    Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

    Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.

    If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

    Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

    Do you serve targeted advertising?

    Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.

Non-PII is data that is not used to specifically identify, contact or locate an individual, including but not limited to zip code, gender, and age.

    When you use the Site, we automatically collect certain information from you, such as your browser type (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome); your Internet domain, (e.g., Comcast, Time Warner, etc.); your computer’s operating system, (e.g., Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, Linux); referring and exit page; operating system; the type of mobile device you use (if applicable); your mobile device’s unique device ID; and your IP address.  This information lets us see how users find our Site, and it tells us which pages users visit most frequently so we can make our Site more useful. We keep this information for an indefinite amount of time to improve the operation of our Site and to provide better services to our users.

    In addition to the data that your browser or Internet session sends us automatically, we may also collect PII if you enter it when using our website.

    Third Parties Contacting You
