    Hi Aun; Take some English classes and apply at the VA. They are very supportive of foreigners. One of the nurses I worked with could not speak any English. I asked what he did to learn besides classes. he told me that he watched TV in English so he would learn the words & how to pronouncate them correctly. That might help too.

    Telemetry patients are on heart monitors. So the nurse taking care of these patients would need to know how to read rhythm strips. More cardiac drugs are used on this type of unit. The hopsital should be giving you a regular orientation, just as they would new grads coming into the facility. Just make sure that you ask questions if you don't understand something.............

    And congratulations on the new position.

    I would start to talk to the director of nurses to find out what the RN salary is and what your salary will be when you get your permit. If you don't have a tv you should get one to see how english is used in everyday conversation.
