The interactions shared during meetings with corporate clients might be different from those on the pediatric wards, but RN Rebecca Muir, who is well-versed in both, says some skills transcend.
Muir left her job as a senior account executive with a leading Australian bank to work as an emergency nurse in pediatrics with the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
She said her previous role, in which she would regularly encounter new faces and speak with chief executives and financial officers, set her up to engage with nursing managers, doctors and other healthcare staff.
Becoming a parent at the same time also helped her settle into her new role, Muir said.
Nursing Review sat down with Muir to discuss the transition from corporate banker to emergency nurse, the skills she took with her during the move, and the parts of the role she didn’t expect.Do you have an idea for a story?
