Telemetry Nurses are in demand due to the specialized knowledge required for this niche area of nursing.
You’ll work in an evolving area of Critical Care called Progressive Care, using technologies and therapies, such as electrocardiograms (ECGs), that were once limited to Critical Care units.
You’ll teach patients how to lead a healthy life and take care of their heart.
You’ll watch the EKG and other machines to make sure the patient remains in a stable condition.
You’ll administer medication, assist with surgery, and perform diagnostic tests for problems such as irregular heartbeat.
