Thanks in advance for reading.
Just wondering if this is a good idea.
I’ve made some posts regarding transferring to the emergency room, but my educator said it is necessary I spend some time on the telemetry unit prior. I am a med/surg nurse with 5 years under my belt. The nursing supervisor said I DO NOT have to do this and recommend I request to be floated there (telemetry) while I stay in med/surg. And I believe she also said, I could even request to be floated to the emergency overflow, occasionally (if I had all the certifications)
Should I transfer to the telemetry unit and stay for 6 months (policy) before going into the ER? If there isn't a position, it might take longer than 6 months.
Or... do what my supervisor says about this floating to telemetry and ED overflow?
I only feel like I can jump straight into the ER because they do hire new graduates. But I also want to be completely prepared (tele experience) before I do.
