Why Georgians Love Georgia

When our clinicians aren’t busy working their jobs in the state of Georgia, there are all sorts of things they can do in their free time. From the state’s beautiful wild beaches southeast on the Atlantic Coast to the unapologetic beauty found exploring the Chattahoochee National Forest in the north, the great outdoors is just one of many opportunities for entertainment and pleasure to be found in the Peach State. Doesn’t hurt at all that the winter months are pretty mild here comparatively thereby making the outdoor activities available practically the whole year.

Common outdoor activities include:

  • Hiking
  • Mountain Biking
  • Whitewater Rafting
  • Fishing
  • Festivals
  • Civil War Sites
  • Kayaking

Big city Atlanta provides serious professional sports entertainment year-round be it football, basketball, or baseball. But that’s not all there is to do, of course. The BeltLine is quickly becoming one of Atlanta’s greatest public features. It’s a loop of walking and biking paths that will ultimately circle the entire city. While it’s not quite finished, its current status is astonishingly successful. Its paths connect residents with neighborhood events, public art, excellent eating options, trendy pubs, and drinking patios, and of course trendy boutiques and markets for retail therapy. Explore Atlanta through the BeltLine one neighborhood at a time, or find a favorite spot and keep going back.

Learn More About the Telemetry Nursing Specialty

telemetry nurses providing bedside care to patients

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.
