i have about 1.5 yrs experience med-surg nursing in northern ca. i may soon start a job in a local cardiology office, just as a relief rn. fill in for the primary rn when she's sick or on vacation. sounds like the job is pretty basic, help md with stress tests mostly, pushing meds, taking bp's, monitoring pts. i love cardiac, and have a cardiac dysrhythmia history of my own so i'm pretty sure i'll like it. i'd like to know: others out there who work primarily in a cardiologists office? good pay? do you work 5 eights?, 4 tens? opportunities in larger cities for a position like this? i live in a small community. just trying to pick brains. this is only a fill in position for me, but it opens the door to a future job in similar setting, i'm thinking. it seems this would be a fairly low stress, (w exception of occassional code, i'm sure) area of nursing...because after 1.5 yrs of med-surg, i could go for low stress!! any input would be appreciated.
you posted this almost a month ago. The office I will start at is 8a-430P or 7-430, can't quite remember. Have you found the answers to your questions? I should be receiving an offer from a cardiology office that does various diagnostics tests and I'm just as curious as you are
Please let me know what you have found out
