Electrophysiology lab nurses specialize in cardiology nursing and assist with electrophysiological studies, which is a non-surgical procedure used to gain information about the heart's electrical activity.
One of the essential roles of an EP lab nurse is to aid and educate patients who must undergo heart procedures and need treatment for abnormal electrical activity.
Some of the EP lab nurse's responsibilities include:
To be an EP lab nurse, you must earn an associate's or bachelor’s degree from an accredited school and pass the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. In addition, you must receive training in cardiovascular electrophysiology and complete the required EP nurse certifications. Once those steps are complete, you can begin an EP lab nurse job.
The job outlook for an electrophysiology lab nurse is promising, as the average salary of an EP lab nurse is higher than what a typical RN makes.
Additionally, depending on your work experience, education, skills, certifications and the hiring facility location, you can make more than the average salary.
