My hospital has a position available for a "Cath Lab Recovery RN." I am trying to figure out exactly what this nurse might do... It says they work in holding, with pre- and post- cath patients. I have ICU, OR and PACU experience, so I think I am qualified. I just wonder exactly what they do... If I recall correctly from nursing school, cath patients are usually just sedated right? How long do they typically stay in "cath lab recovery" before they move on to a post-cath unit?
