telemetry nursing organizations


Quick question, are there any typical nursing organizations that cardiac stepdown / telemetry nurses join? It seems that joining the med-surg one doesn't really apply for telemetry nurses.

Thanks guys!

You can also join the American College of Cardiovascular Nurses, Inc. They are strictly a cardiovascular nurses organization and have a lot to offer, I have been a member since the late 90s and got certified through them.

Thank you so much for posting about the American College of Cardiovascular Nurses. I had no idea this organization existed. I used to work as a CCU nurse and as a telemetry nurse, and yet I never heard about this ACCN! I just Googled them and checked out the website, Tomorrow afternoon I have a job interview for a position in a local hospital's CVPCU, so if I get the job in CVPCU, I will definatly be joining the American College of Cardiovascular Nurses! Thanks!
