Welcome to Vanderbilt!
I’m Emily McBride, MSN, RN, the manager of the Adult Emergency Department (ED), located in Vanderbilt University Hospital.
Vanderbilt serves as a Level One trauma center, Stroke Center, and Chest Pain Center, and the majority of these patients begin their care in the ED. The Emergency Department welcomes patients from all regions with a wide variety of illnesses. Our nurses must have a broad knowledge base on various disease processes, treatments and procedures in order to provide excellent care to our patients.

Our department specializes in providing emergency-level treatment to all patients. We are recognized as Centers of Excellence in Trauma, Stroke, Heart Failure, and Cardiology. Our focus is on patient and family-centered care. We strive to provide timely and efficient evaluation, treatment and disposition of our patients.
A typical shift for our nurses includes participating in a team shift report prior to receiving their primary assignment. Our nurses encounter a diverse patient population every day, with assignments ranging from the acute and critically ill to non-acute and fast track patients. Other assignments include trauma and triage. Our department utilizes a team approach to perform primary nursing with the assistance of care partners and paramedics.
We pride ourselves on our team-based approach to providing quality, safe, comprehensive, and excellent care.
