As a result, the nurse must be skilled at rapid, accurate physical examination, early recognition of life-threatening illness or injury, the use of advanced monitoring and treatment equipment, and in some cases, order diagnostic tests within "advance treatment guidelines" or "standing orders" set out by the hospital's emergency medical staff.
Emergency Nurses must have a sound knowledge of emergency care and need to demonstrate clinical competence and the ability to work independently when required, for example in triage, initiating investigations, and when actively involved in resuscitation.
