Hello and welcome to my department!
We're Emily McBride, MSN, RN, dayshift manager (top photo) and Ashley Jeffrey, MSN, RN, TCRN, nighsift manager of the Adult Emergency Department, also known as Adult ED. We are located on the first floor of Vanderbilt University Hospital.
The environment in our department is fast-paced, high-volume, and staff is like a family.
We care for all patients who present to our department to be treated for emergent medical conditions. Our patients are unique because we never know who is going to come through our doors.
One of the perks of working in my department is the opportunity to treat patients with a wide array of illnesses and injuries.
Our nurses are successful because they have support, knowledge, and critical thinking skills.
We orient new staff by providing individualized orientation based upon the unique needs of the staff member.
Our unit is in the Adult Critical Care track of the Nurse Residency Program.
We encourage professional growth.
Whether your career goal is to be a top notch clinical nurse, a Flight Crew member, a Nurse Practitioner, or in a leadership role, the Adult ED can help with this by offering individualized mentoring and development.
