A cardiac telemetry nurse, often just referred to as a telemetry nurse, is a nurse who provides care to patients whose heart requires constant monitoring.
Telemetry nurse duties and responsibilities are more demanding than many other nursing positions, as they constantly assess and monitor their patients. These patients are typically more compromised than most patients and make sudden changes in their condition more common.
Some of the duties of a telemetry nurse include:
To perform these duties and become a telemetry nurse, you must complete all the education requirements to become a registered nurse and then gain telemetry experience.
Although not required, a certification from the American Association for Critical Care Nurses in the sub-specialty of your choice indicates a high level of expertise and can provide increased pay and career opportunities as a telemetry nurse.
Telemetry nursing is a rapidly growing career with a 24% job growth projected between 2014 and 2024, which is likely too conservative in light of the COVID-19 pandemic that began in 2020.
The average telemetry nurse's salary is higher than a typical RN's. However, the average salary is likely higher for travel telemetry nurses.
