There’s More Than the Cowboy Life in Texas

Not all our nurses and assistants in Texas are cowboys and cowgirls (although a high percentage of them probably have at least one pair of cowboy boots in the closet). Sure, Texans are known for their drawl and the cowboy life pictured in Hollywood movies, but there’s a lot more on offer. Regular downtime activities for residents include:

  • Live Music – Be it in a local bar, a big concert venue, or one of the many music festivals; live music can be found just about anywhere.
  • Football – In Texas any football game is a big deal, be it the community high school game, any of the university teams, and of course the professional teams.
  • Watersports – Texas not only has a coastline on both sides, but Lake Travis is a favorite spot for tubing, boating, and water skis, and rafting, kayaking or canoeing on the Rio Grande through the Santa Elena Canyon is another must.
  • Hiking – There are more than 100 national or state parks in this state, Big Bend National Park is undoubtedly the largest and offers over 150 miles of trails.
  • Rock-climbing – Hueco Tanks is another park popular for hiking, but it’s world-famous to rock climbers, both amateur and professional.

Nurses Specializing in Radiology Are in Demand Now

Radiology Nursing Specialty

Radiology nurses are also at times referred to as medical imaging nurses. Their position is a crucial role in diagnostics, utilizing cutting edge technology that provides a window to the inner workings of the human body. Advancements being made today enable diagnostic testing to be less invasive, more accurate, less painful, and more insightful.

This specialty is important, but one that nursing students don’t often have the option of for clinical rotation. As such, more experienced nurses find their way to the specialty later in their careers. Due to the highly-specialized nature of the position, the PRN shifts for radiology clinicians through Nursa™ are some of our highest compensated.

Where Do Radiology Nurses Work?

Medical imaging nurses can find themselves working in a myriad of settings. Their skills are utilized in research centers, prestigious teaching hospitals, freestanding radiology clinics, and outpatient imaging centers, and community hospitals.

Often radiology nurses benefit from having previous work experience in the emergency department, an intensive care unit, a cardiac cath lab, or the post-anesthesia care unit. Their expertise is often utilized in the fields of Endocrinology, Neurology, Oncology, and Procedural Recovery Units.

What Do Radiology Nurses Do?

Radiology nurses are highly specialized because of the intricacies of the testing they perform. The diagnostics that they commonly perform include: X-Rays, Mammograms, Ultrasounds, Vascular or Neuro Interventional Radiology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT scans), Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, Positron Emission Tomography (PET scans), and more.

Radiology specialty nurse care isn’t only about the machines, however. They complete interviews and assessments of patients prior to the diagnostic testing, they monitor the patient throughout the procedure, and after. Additionally, they provide education to the patient and their family and collaborate with specialists.

Necessary Traits of a Successful Radiology Nurse

A medical imaging clinician needs to be adept and dexterous in the handling of machines and technology to cause the minimum amount of discomfort to patients. Keen assessment, observation, and analytical skills are required as well to handle patients who are grappling with anxieties, fears, and physical limitations. Compassion and efficiency serve to support patients through a procedure with care and practicality.

Recommended Certifications for Radiology Nurses

The Association for Radiologic & Imaging Nurses offers courses and certifications to nurses interested in radiology, including the Certified Radiology Nurse (CRN) certification after a certain amount of experience and formal training has been completed. Other certifications may be required or preferred depending on the work setting.
