Critical Care Transport Nurse
Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha, NE
With more than fifteen years in emergency settings large and small and spanning five states, Emily Colyer, BSN, RN, CEN, CTRN, NREMTP, knows that emergency nurses have a common bond no matter where you practice. She likes taking care of people and likes working with others who also like to take care of people. “No matter where I’ve been, the staff has made a difference in the patients’ outcomes. Both emergency and transport nurses are really dedicated to deepening their knowledge base and refining their clinical skills,” said Colyer.
Colyer earned her Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) credential in 2004 and her Certified Transport Registered Nurse (CTRN) credential in April of this year, and has no plans to let either BCEN certification lapse. She said, “Any increase in your knowledge base is a good thing. Keeping my certifications means I have to keep current with advances and practices in my field and work on becoming a better clinician.” Read the full story.
