For anyone interested in getting off the truck, my ED is hiring EMTs as "Technical Nursing Assistants." Pay starts around $16 and up with great benefits.

Current available shifts as of 10/9/17
24hrs / week 1500-2300
32hrs / week 1500-2300
32hrs / week 2300-0700
32hrs / week 0700-1500 (pediatric)
24hrs / week 0700-1500 (pediatric)

Basically as a TNA in an ED you:
- Assist the RN's with EMS admissions (initial vitals, getting them on telemetry ect).
- Perform 12 leads (recognition of life threatening dysrhythmias a plus).
- Glucose testing.
- Phlebotomy (the hospital will train you).
- Answering call lights and alerting the RN of the patient's needs.
- Watching SI patient's for safety.
- Act as a runner to and from the lab with samples and retrieving blood from the blood bank.
- Ambulation of the patients per the nurses orders.
- TNA's do all the orthopedic splinting and assistive device teaching.
- You are expected to get into the compression rotation in codes.
- Minor computer documentation (the hospital will train you in Epic).
- Assist the RN with post mortem care.

What you won't do:
- Carry 250lb pt's down triple deckers with a stair chair.
- Shovel trash out of the hallway in a hoarder's house to extricate.
- Work outside in ****ty weather.
- Make shift two hours late because dispatch has "just one more quick IFT before you come in."

If anyone is thinking nursing school may be in their future, this is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door at a hospital and start networking. Many TNA's have worked here through RN school and been hired right into the department as new grads.
