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.
