I posted this under the Cardiac Nursing Forum also. I'm a new nurse. Been working in Med/Surg for just about 6 months. I am currently looking for a Tele position. I have the Basic Arrythmia certification. It looks like I'll have a shot at a Regular Tele job or a position in an Intermediate Cardiac Unit (CVIMC). They are post-op Open Heart 24 - 48 hours. I was leaning towards the CVIMC because I want to eventually end up in ICU. Do you think that someone with my minimal experience could handle the CVIMC position? I don't want to get in over my head. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
