2nd career

  1. Hi everybody! I'm about to graduate from nursing school and would like very much to be a telemetry nurse. I live in NY but would consider work in the metro area. What are the job specifications for a telemetry nurse? Do I need to take additional training after I graduate? Ty.

    Hi, I am a newish telemetry/med-surg nurse, but not from NY. The only extra training that I have had to take has been provided by the hospital that I work for as part of my new grad orientation. Main things have been EKG courses and the like. Some tele/PCU floors also require ACLS certification. I hope this information is pertinent to NY- Good luck!

    More than likely you'll have to take a Telemetry course, learning how to read rhythm strips and internventions and whatnot. But they'll tell you all about that.

    Good luck!
