S.W.A.T. Team Nurses???

I am already sick of Med-surg nursing. How many of you guys have nurses on your team?

I just read an article in a Future Nurse magazine I found in the break room entitled "Adrenaline Addiction". Apparently there is an intense 10-day TEMS course avail to ER and Trauma nurses.

I think I may have found a new direction to take my career.

We have a a bunch of operators who are EMTs. The medic is a FD guy we bring for the potentially worse than normal hits. The doc is a bona fide surgeon. No nurses. Frankly, I dont' care who is patching me up. I DO care who is in the stack.

Hey Rich.

Would you consider adding an article about T.E.M.S. to one of the next issues of S.W.A.T.??
