How will telemetry prepare me for the OR?

  1. I 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?

    You 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.
