    i want to meet some more rn's doing echocardiograms...and since a lot of nurses of different places are in to this forum, i posted this thread...

    suzanne is an experienced nurse (for 25 years..i think)..hands up to that...but don't expect me to believe all what she's saying...this is a forum and i'm just expressing what i feel...

    suzanne was trying to help you. since you already met 5-8 rn's that doing echocardiograms, then why don't you ask them about their knowledge and experiences.

    not usually performed by nurses??? ..i have met one in yahoo groups..she's an rn at the same time an rdcs (registered diagnostic cardiac sonographer)..and she's earning more than being a plain nurse...so far..i think i have met 5-8 rn's in that group doing echocardiograms...

    here in the philippines..echocardiography, stress testing, ecg are all under one department--the non invasive lab...
    "not usually performed by nurses" means exactly just that "not usually performed." 5 to 8 people really don't sum up the rn population in the us. statistically speaking, it won't even pass as a group representation.

    she (suzanne) was only trying to help.
