Hello All Nurses :) I am a grad of Dec 04 who has been working on an interventional cardiac unit- very fast paced. There will be an opening in non- invasive cardiology soon, and I am wanting to know what those nurses do. I do have 6 mos experience on the interventional; would that be enough for non- invasive? Please tell me your experiences- much appreciated. I want to have a realistic view before I apply for an interview. Thanks in advance- JR

maybe I'll try posting over in the coronary care section. Thanks- Jr
Lots of pacer checks,EECPs,vitals, brief notes on all for docs,stress test,holters.
I loved the cathlab/interventional side of the practice but did not care for the non-invasive side just because the staff was gossip hounds and constantly complained about everything.
thanks Hollyster for replying. What did the nurses always complain about? Hmm, maybe thats why there is an opening here hehe. Doesn't the gossip thing happen anywhere? I know I can't say anything where I am now that I wouldn't want everyone else to know- got some jabberjaws there. Most of the pts are outpatients then? Thx, Jr
They just complained about a lot of nonsense things. I did not work on that side of the house often but when I did the stuff just blew me away. They even had a coffee pot check chart, each persons name was on a list and they had to initial whenever they changed the pot and what type of coffee was supposed to be next. My first time over there one woman was explaining this and I told her I do not drink the stuff and I would rather be oriented to my pt responsibilities then the staffs snacks.
