Trauma Nurse Resume Samples

The main and core duty of a Trauma Nurse is to act during emergencies and stabilize the patient and keep them alive. Some of the duties of these nurses are included on the Trauma Nurse Resume as – working with triage nurses and serving the most critical patients, giving emergency medication, giving IV fluids or blood, performing wound care, working directly with physicians, and giving updates on medical conditions, wounds and injuries; working with patients and their families to give reassurance and explanations, providing resources to patients who have gone through a traumatic injury; and giving CPR and first aid care as needed.

A professional Trauma Nurse should be able to tackle demanding and complex problems and be able to stay calm in stressful situations. They have to be dedicated and have the potential to deal with traumatised patients and family members. They should handle serious injuries and illnesses, and work in a chaotic and stressful environment. Just like other nurses, the basic qualification to enter the profession includes a degree in nursing. Additional requirement includes a nursing license and experience as Emergency Nurse.
