What other units can my telemetry experience get me in?
I’d say anything! I am currently an ICU nurse ECMO specialist. My previous role was a tele nurse. Tele nurses have multitasking down to an art and just need to show they are willing to humbly learn a new craft.
I have 30 years of cardiac telemetry experience. If you notice online, there are many opportunities that you have find in telemetry not just in the acute care hospital setting. Having telemetry experience opens the doors to many possibilities out there! Good luck in your job search!
A PACU position is a possibility. Also, running stress tests for an outpatient facility. I was able to become a Procedural Sedation RN because of my Telemetry experience (administering midazolam and fentanyl for Moderate Sedation). Good Luck!
Anywhere. Im a new grad starting in the ER
Honestly anywhere. I worked tele 1.5 years then just switched to ER
