I got a job offer to work on a Cardiac Telemetry Floor as a new grad. However, I’m nervous about taking the job because eventually I work to transfer to either ED ,CVICU or ICU. I just want to make sure I get enough experience and skills in before I enter those department and I don’t think I will learn from a cardiac tele floor. Also , I notice the hospital I’m working at has a med surge /tele unit. So what’s the difference between the two.
 

I never done NG, Foley, or even did an IV. Will a cardiac Tele  unit offer these skills set.
