Question on Clinical Transplant Coordination

  1. How does one go about becoming a Transplant Coordinator?
    What nursing specialty would be good to work in for preparing?
    Is BSN a must or would ADN be sufficient?

    Any other pertinent information?

    Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Check out the job opportunites link on UNOS - it has a couple of X-plant coordinator positions with job requirements.

    Your best bet might be to talk with someone at your local transplant center. I have known of nurses with an OR background and ICU backgrounds who became transplant coordinators, but I don't know what experience is actually preferred. Good luck!
