IMHO, a tele floor is very similar to a med/surg floor in the sense that you will use the same time management and organizational skills needed to balance your patient load. The main difference is that you may see more of a variety in the pt population in med/surg, but I still had quite the variety in tele.
For example, I had pts with chest pain rule-out MI, post PTCA, post heart surgery, CHF exacerbation, COPD exacerbation, pneumonia, lung ca, pulmonary HTN, renal failure (acute and chronic), liver failure, anyone with cardiac history who needs tele monitoring, even the electrolyte imbalance or new diabetic. Point is, you will see quite the variety! The bonus to working a tele floor is that you will learn your rhythms, which will give you quite a foot forward if you ever decide to specialize further. Good luck in whatever you choose!
