PRN Nurses and CNAs Live It Up in California
The state of California is so big, it can hardly be described in a few adjectives. Moreover, its geography varies so greatly that said adjectives may be contradictory to each other based on where you reside. California has mountains, it has a barren desert, it has lush forests, and it has beaches. Wherever you live in the Golden State, there are countless activities and majestic sites to inspire and enliven you.
Regular free-time activities:
- Vineyards and wineries
- Rock climbing
- Scuba diving
It would be impossible to provide a comprehensive list of California’s star attractions but here’s a teaser to get you started:
- Alcatraz – Take a short cruise to visit the famous island prison also known as “The Rock”.
- Venice Beach – Join the thousands of people from around the world that visit Venice Beach daily and see the street performers, buy from the vendors, and try your skateboarding skills.
- Universal Studios Hollywood – Visit the theme park, catch a show, and arrange a run-in with your favorite character.
- San Francisco Ballet – Experience performance art by watching the exquisite dancers of San Francisco’s Ballet Company, founded in 1933.
- Lake Tahoe – California indeed has gorgeous ocean views, but Lake Tahoe’s beauty shouldn’t be overlooked. Rent a cabin or stay in a resort and enjoy all the fun a weekend at the lake has to offer.
- Getty Center – Architecture and art buffs will get lost visiting the Getty Center. Rotating exhibitions and community events make this center more than a one-time visit.

Learn More About the Telemetry Nursing Specialty
Telemetry nurses provide care and observation for patients who require a higher acuity of care than what is standard but don’t quite rise to the level for the Intensive Care Unit ICU or Critical Care Unit (CCU).
Some of their patients will have transitioned from critical to less critical while others may be enduring a chronic debilitating illness or preparing for preparing for a surgery. As hospital Intensive Care Units downsize the demand for Telemetry conversely rises.

Where Does a Telemetry Nurse Work?
The settings in which a telemetry nurse can find work are less varied than some other specialties. Due to their role in observation and surveillance of persons who are critically ill, have sleeping disorders or physical trauma, they will not normally be employed by doctors’ offices, schools, nor typical medical health centers. Instead, their work will be primarily in trauma centers, hospitals, and rural hospitals in certain units. These units may be referred to as telemetry units, transitional care units, direct observation units, or intermediate care units.
They serve a critical function and as such hospitals and facilities who employ them use Nursa™ to fill shift gaps and vacancies to find PRN clinicians thereby ensuring the quality of patient care does not suffer.
What Does a Telemetry Nurse Do?
In addition to the general duties of any registered nurse such as administering medications, providing basic quality care, and providing education and guidance about a patient’s health condition, Telemetry RNs are responsible for monitoring their patient’s well-being through the use of medical technology. Surveillance of medical devices that monitor heart rate, breathing, oxygen saturation, blood pressure are among the most commonly used.
Recommended Certifications for Telemetry Nurses
For Telemetry nurses there exist three different credentialing groups. There is the National Telemetry association, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, or Cardiovascular Credentialing International. Certifications for life support typically are mandatory, and other certification requirements will depend on the hospital. Obtaining additional certifications could provide you with a competitive edge while at the same time demonstrating your devotion to your patients and your career.
- Basic Life Support (BLS)
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
- Progressive Care Certified Nurse (PCCN)
- Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN)
- Tele-ICU Adult Acute/Critical Care Nursing Certification (CCRN-E)
What are the Characteristics of a Keen Telemetry Nurse?
Telemetry nurses should possess keen observation skills, and an ability to remain focused in the midst of monotony. Superior technical skills and a thorough understanding of the technological instruments used for critical care is crucial so as not to miss anything important in the progress or regress of their patients. Additionally, a telemetry nurse must be able to analyze and interpret the data provided by specialized equipment.
