Telemetry Travel Nurse Jobs

Telemetry (Tele) Travel Nursing Jobs

Clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners looking to expand their career may choose to sub-specialize in telemetry under a primary specialization in a particular patient population focus, and often in combination with other sub-specializations such as acute or critical care. In summary, telemetry nurses work with critically ill patients who require the use of monitoring devices, such as those that measure heart rates, breathing rates, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. Nurses may monitor patients at their bedsides and provide medications and other support as needed, or provide remote telemetry services in which monitors for telemetry devices are in a central location, such as a nurses’ station.

Taking steps towards specialization can be intimidating, as is making the jump to travel nursing. That’s why since 1996 we have provided travel telemetry and step-down nursing professionals just like you with great employment experiences in top locations through compassionate customer service, and tenured recruiters who know what it takes to build lasting relationships.
