RNs working in telemetry nursing jobs treat patients being monitored for blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen level, breathing rate, and other vital signs. Most telemetry patients have recently undergone major surgery but are no longer in need of intensive care.
Although specific guidelines vary by state, telemetry nursing jobs generally require specific training in addition to standard nurse licensure. This training may include a specialized telemetry program offered by a hospital or university, or certification via the Critical Care Registered Nurse Exam (CCRN-E). Our recruitment experts are happy to help acquire licenses specific to the locations where you want to travel.
Telemetry nurse salary rates are dependent on experience, training, and location. Positions requiring higher levels of experience or training frequently offer higher rates of pay.
