new grade in cardiac rehab

  1. Ill be finishing up my nursing degree soon. I also have a bachelor of science in exercise physiology. I did a internship in cardiac rehab before. I was curious as to if I could get a job as a nurse in cardiac rehab out of school?

    It would seem like a great fit for you, but you don't know until you try. You will certainly be more qualified than other new grads.

    Best of luck.

    I'd go for it. They might think they prefer someone with more cardiac experience, so tell them you intend to take the first basic arrhythmia course that comes along (find out when it is and tell them, so they know you're serious), a refresher on cardiac meds, and you're looking forward to using your exercise physiology degree in your favorite area, cardiac rehab, because ... .

    Good luck!
