Question on Clinical Transplant Coordination

Specialties Operating Room


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!
