I was looking into a few interventional radiology nursing jobs
and am looking for advice from some of you. I am completely interested in starting a career in this area and feel like I have enough experience to learn the job. Ive been a nurse for going on 5 years with 3 years experience on a cardiothoracic stepdown/cardiac telemetry unit (no vents) and 1.5 years experience in PACU (granted it is "lower acuity" with mostly ortho, gen surg, urology, ENT, GYN etc and no hearts or neuro) as well as Endoscopy. If you were a hiring manager do you feel my skills could translate over to IR or should I spend time in the ICU first?
