new grad in neuro-telemetry intermediate CCURegister Today!
- by barsk103 Jan 28, '06Hi all,
Im a nursing student interviewing for a job on a neuro-telemetry "intermediate CCU."
I have no idea what I want to do when i graduate - and told the nurse recruiter that i found neuro and telemetry interesting so she set me up with this interview.
Any advice? or experiences on this type of floor you can elighten me with? Is this a feesible place for GN's to start? How critical are these patients?

- Jan 29, '06 by Keysnurse2008Are you talking about a EPI unit? The patients are monitored (ekg and eeg and cameras) when there is seizure activity you basically record the events?Is that what you are calling a neurotelemetry unit?????
- Jan 29, '06 by barsk103actually, i do not know. the nurse recruiter told me it was a neuro-telemetry unit. when i questioned her... basically its a neuro unit with some patients on tele.
what have your experiences been on neuro? just curious as to what it is like to work on a neuro unit??
