U.S. Air Force: Capt John Thompson, Emergency Room Nurse


I was a nurse in the civilian world for
ten years and loved every minute of it, but it wasn’t enough. From a civilian standpoint you come in,
you do your job, and you go home. In the Air Force we are
entrusted with mentorship, preceptorship, growing airmen, growing ourselves
professionally, and ultimately the Air Force was everything that I was looking for. My name is John J Thompson. I’m a captain in the United States Air Force
and I’m an emergency room nurse. Being in the emergency room has its stressful moments. You have a lot of dynamics. So from the very old to the very young,
you have to be prepared to address all those types of emergencies. Teams are essential. Some people are gonna be better at other aspects of the job, and so you can rely
on these people, but at the same time attitude is what is the main ingredient. You have a good team with a good attitude – your day is golden. So when patients come in it is our job to recognize emergencies, and put into place the interventions that the doc has ordered. So that we can get this person
either admitted to the hospital or discharged home. My favorite part about
being in the Air Force is being a mentor. The Air Force gave me that opportunity
to give back. It’s very rewarding to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
