How will telemetry prepare me for the OR?
- 0Jul 13, '12 by 2bnurse_itI have been a telemetry nurse for 2 years. I am just wondering what things can I take from being a telemetry RN to help prepare me to become an operating room nurse?
or does it even help at all?
- 0Jul 13, '12 by FloridanurseYou need to focus on critical thinking, organization and safety awareness. All are vital in the OR. When I started in the OR, I did not think my previous experience had any preparedness for the OR. As I have learned, my previos experience helps me be very prepared for each case.
