INDIANAPOLIS — Emergency nursing is a unique specialty within nursing, requiring those nurses who work in the field to have specific skills to handle emotionally and physically demanding situations. In order to prepare and guide students, new nurses, and current nurses eager to pursue professional opportunities within this specialty, author Jeff Solheim, MSN, RN, CEN, CFRN, TCRN, FAEN, has written a new resource filled with facts, notes, and practical advice for success in emergency care.

In Emergency Nursing: The Profession, the Pathway, the Practice, published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), Solheim delves into the many opportunities and challenges emergency nurses face, including navigating through various career avenues and making self-care a priority. This is the only book on the market that includes information about emergency nursing as a profession and career, providing readers with a different approach beyond a clinical and management viewpoint.

For more than 20 years, Solheim has fulfilled numerous roles in emergency nursing. He draws on his extensive experience to share the realities of emergency nursing across different work settings. Throughout the book, new nurses will be introduced to the challenges, situations, and patient populations that emergency nurses will encounter on a regular basis. Experienced nurses will take away new tools and strategies to incorporate in solving likely workplace problems, such as risk management and patient care.

“There are several clinical books on emergency nursing that focus on diagnosis and procedures,” Solheim said. “The purpose of this particular book is to introduce the reader to the profession of emergency nursing from several different vantage points.”
