Thanks for the interest! From what I've learned, every radiology nurse has a different "typical day"! First of all, we have an unpredictable schedule. When I left for today, there was 3 patients on for tommorrow. When I go in in the morning, there will be more. Some cancelled, some changed from one modality to another. Since I am the full time nurse, it's my job to keep the interventional doctor and nurses moving...with alot of help from the techs, of course! The scheduled patients are usually myelograms, angios (anywhere but heart), CT biopsies, US biopsies, thoracentesis, paracentesis, drains, AV shunt declotting, and stuff like that. We also service nuclear medicine which is not included on our schedule. We start IV's for hidas and administer sincalide, do IV's for mugas, and provide IVs and meds for renal scans. Also throught the day, CT calls us for 'difficult sticks'. Combine this with all the little extras like sitting with floor patients that require a nurse, and helping the radiologist understand ACLS, it makes for a hetic day! Today was a good day (I got a 20 min uninterupted lunch!). The job would be perfect if there were just more hours in a day (without OT!!). The schedule is great for my family. Since I'm also a tech, I guess this is my home. Thanks for asking!
