After reading everyone else's comments, I think that to be a confident and competent company nurse, it would be essential to have years of nursing experience, especially in an Emergency setting.

I have a friend who worked as company nurse as her part time job and as a staff nurse too. It is really true that being a nurse you need to attend trainings to update your knowledge and skills.

I have always been curious of what a company nurse job would be. As what I've learnt from University, company nurse can also be called an Occupational Heath Nurse, is that right? The duties and responsibilties may not look as busy as it is compared to working in a ward or in an emergency department but I'm sure a company nurse has so much to do in his/her hands.
