Hi there - new here. Just got hired at Kaiser Med/Surg-Tele and had to take a EKG test. Only had 1 night to study! I failed the first time but have 2 more chances to take if. Just curious if anyone else had the same experience? Feeling super bummed but hopeful I will pass!

I did, but since I was hired into OB, I didn't give it much thought (they didn't care). I would be concerned if you are hired into the tele department and you can't pass the tele test. That would be like hiring someone into L&D who can't identify what she is seeing on a fetal monitor strip.

Good luck, I hope you pass.
