RTÉ One are looking to cast an experienced Emergency Department nurse to take part in the new series of ‘Toughest Place To Be’. The nurse will have the exciting opportunity to travel to a community in the developing world and practice as an A&E nurse in that host country. They will work in an A&E setting, working with a team of local nurses and doctors, applying all their training and experience to this new challenging environment. The nurse will also move in with a local family in the host country to sample the lifestyle and culture of the country.
Earlier this year Dublin street sweeper Mark Crosbie took part in ‘Toughest Place To Be A Street Sweeper’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98GlkOZjVmg Mark left his job and family behind to travel to Manilla to swap roles with Mel, a local street sweeper, to see the vast differences between the two mens’ lifes . After returning back to Ireland, Mark spoke of his experiences saying “Things are different now, having seen what I seen. But for the better. The sights that I seen, nothing prepared me for that. But the bond that I made with Mel and his family will be always there. Its a lasting bond.”
Producer Jamie D’Alton said, “It’s well known Irish Emergency Departments can be challenging places to work, no one day is the same and nursing staff go above and beyond in their care of patients. But how does an Irish A&E compare to those in the developing world? We are looking for a A&E nurse to highlight the skill, compassion and bravery that make Irish nurses some of the most valued medical professionals in the world”.
“It’s a huge life experience for anybody to take part in Toughest Place To Be... It’s not easy, the nurse will be working in a very challenging environment but it’s also a hugely rewarding experience and one that they will never forget”.
Any female nurses, who are interested in taking part should email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the 8th of June. The ideal candidate must be able to travel for eight days this summer and the selected nurse will be reimbursed for all expenses and any loss of earnings when away. The production team will endeavor to secure a short leave of absence with hospital management.
