You need to be an RN (registered nurst) with your state. Nurses rotate through all areas of the hospital during their clinicals including the ER. You will also rotate to Med/Surg, Psyche, ICU, OB/GYN, Long Term Care and possibly others. You will take classes on anatomy, biology, chemistry, microbiology, law and patient care.

While in nursing school, you will rotate through the various departments. Television has inspired a a lot of people by glamorizing the ER, so it is important that you understand the realities of emergency medicine. Additional studies in emergency care will better prepare you. Then apply for positions in the EM department.

First you must complete the core requirements of your current college program, and then the core classes to get into the nursing program, which is very extensive and involves difficult classes such as advanced anatomy, math, and microbiology classes among others. Once in the program, you must do clinicals and eventually they will steer you towards specializing in ER nursing.
