The situation you can talk about is having to do an emergent intubation being new to the ER. Talk about all the news media surrounds a nurse that lost her license from making a medical error and being uncomfortable with doctor yelling out orders and having to administer medication because u felt underprepared/uncomfortable because thats not something I use to doing working on a step down unit(inpatient hospital). You could use the discussion topic of ” my thoughts and feeling in the situation” second guessing myself or looking to someone else for help but having to do it quickly because it was an emergency situation. The only thing that made me feel a little at ease was having a great team of nurses to help me and not being alone because it was a team effort.

The situation you could go into detail about was i was working in the trauma bay but still on orientation and my preceptor was allowing me to take the lead in situations at this point and i had an overdose come in and we could not get her saturation up so i had to intubate her for respiratory distress. The doctor went to yelling out orders and i was a little overwelmed but she started yelling out how much proprofol and etomidate we were going to use but no orders were entered so i immediatatly started to second guess myself. but i was not alone and everyone jumped in to help and everyone has a role and everything went well
