More from New Thing Nurse aka Sarah Wells

Sarah Wells, MSN, RN, CEN, CNL
"Hello! My name is Sarah K. Wells, MSN, RN, CEN, CNL, and I have been an Emergency Nurse since I was a New Grad Nurse. I totally understand how it can be hard to figure out what type of nurse you want to be, but with ENA, I found it so easy to know that Emergency Nursing was for me.

You may be wondering who I am, so let me tell you a little about myself! My name is Sarah, and I live in Oakland, California. I am originally from Georgia and graduated from nursing school there in 2010. I started my Emergency Nurse career in 2011 at a community hospital where I got amazing experience and really learned to be a Jill of all trades. After about two years in nursing, I moved to California in 2012 where I still live and work today!

After working in trauma, stroke, cardiac, and burn centers, I have settled down at another community hospital where I work at the bedside and as the Lead Pediatric Champion where I work to enhance the education opportunities for my ED colleagues. I also started my own business, New Thing Nurse, where I help nursing students and veteran RNs land their dream jobs, get into school, and launch their new ideas through supportive academic and professional coaching.

I am so excited that you are here to learn more about Emergency Nursing, and I hope to help you all along the way!"
