Telemetry travel nurses know every detail matters.
RNs in telemetry nursing jobs use their eye for detail and consistency to keep patients healthy. They use high-tech equipment to monitor patient conditions and progress. Tele nurses take care of patients released from critical care who are at risk for developing complications. Common conditions tele travel nurses treat include cardiac surgery, renal failure, COPD, sleep disorders, neurological problems, epilepsy, and cancer.
Responsibilities on shift include carefully analyzing the patient’s vitals, overseeing telemetry equipment maintenance, administering medication, and communicating with the patient and family. For example, some RNs specialize in cardiac telemetry and are proficient in the use of electrocardiogram equipment. Because patients require round-the-clock monitoring, telemetry travel nurses are essential. Consequently, telemetry nurses are in high demand and their wages are above average.
Talented telemetry (tele) travel nurses are in high demand for acute-care facilities across the US. Travelers often time earn higher pay than staff nurses, and at GIFTED, we prioritize finding the opportunities that work best for your career and family. Traveling tele nurses may have the option to earn overtime (OT) or pick up per diem shifts in their area. GIFTED offers many benefits for their per diem and travel nurses, including full health, dental, and vision insurance from day one. We also offer licensure reimbursement and weekly or daily pay when applicable. We see the value nurses add to healthcare facilities and express that in every contract.
