As an emergency nurse, finding time to familiarize oneself with arterial-line monitoring or a new piece of equipment is often impossible. A group of staff nurses recognized the need for more "hands-on" learning and pursued a method to make our education more meaningful. A hospital general nursing skills day offered little benefit to ED nursing staff who are tasked with more specialized skills. It was imperative to develop an efficient process to prepare the ED nurses to provide best practice and care to their patients. © 2014 Emergency Nurses Association.
