radiology/MRI/CT nurse falls under the description of special procedures nurse. meaning that these nurses are responsible for the care of patients receiving procedures that cannot be done on the floor or in most outpatient settings. IV dye admninistration, rectal contrast admnistration and conscious sedation are just a few of the duties they perform for tests such as EGD's, ct scans and MRI tests. most nurses that work in this area have a few years of acute care experience. they usually have nice schedules (M-F) with holidays off (some hopsitals, not all) some hospitals require on call. it all depends where you work. i personally would not feel comfortable in this environment as a new grad. you need to have excellent assessment and critical thinking skills. good luck in whatever you decide, but keep your expectations realistic.
