Check out The Cardiac Catheterization Handbook by Morton J. Kern. It is a great resource for starting off in the cath lab.
Yes, just started earlier this year.
ST with LVH and LAE.
Air & Surface Patient Transport: Principles and Practice is the textbook that goes with the CFRN. It is very comprehensive, but I will warn you that it can be a dry read. A good review is: Back to Basics: Critical Care Transport Certification Review by Orchid Lee Lopez. It is full of good test questions. I am studying for the exam myself and have not taken it yet, but if you study I am sure it is possible that you can pass it. However, the CFRN will be easier with flight experience, especially things like flight operations and physiology.
I have been researching different Adult ACNP programs for a while now and I am interested in Vanderbilt's Intensivist NP Program. I was wondering if anyone is in or has completed this program and can tell me about it. Thanks.
New nurse, started on a cardiovascular ICU and am looking for recommendations for a cardio book that I will really benefit from in regards to cardiac issues, dysrhythmias, drugs/pressors, etc.
You need around 5 years experience as an RN in ED/critical care, even better if its at a level 1 trauma hospital. A BSN looks good, as well as certs like CCRN, CFRN, CEN, ACLS, PALS, NRP. Getting your paramedic license does look good, though is usually not necessary.
