Telemetry nurses work in hospitals, clinics, and other facilities where patients require intense monitoring with technology devices. These RNs are trained to track patient function and respond in a timely manner to needs-based in part on the information gained by various machines and monitors. While telemetry nurses are often found on floors that treat cardiovascular issues, they're also involved in other niches, including neurology and sleep health.
Telemetry nurses taking on short-term contract positions typically work assignments that last on average from 3 to 13 weeks. They may also work in positions related to special projects or crisis or rapid response needs.
These technology-backed nursing jobs are highly sought after, due in part to the experience that can be gained. NurseChoice has short-term contract positions across the country.
Telemetry Rapid Response Nursing Jobs
Rapid response nursing jobs are available when a facility has an immediate need for qualified RNs. Often, hospitals and other providers turn to short-term contract assignments as a way to staff up immediately when opening a new wing, for example. Or, perhaps, an entirely new hospital is opening and needs nurses on all floors on day one. In some cases, short-term contract telemetry nurses might be needed to help with special projects.
Crisis Telemetry Nurse Jobs are Available
Crisis response nurses often step in to fulfill growing needs during a natural disaster or another emergency. Hurricanes, earthquakes, and even a catastrophic chemical spill are all examples of emergencies that might tax an area's clinical resources and require crisis response nurses. The COVID-19 pandemic is an example of an urgent situation that impacted the entire nation — really, the entire globe — and led to many crisis-response nursing assignments.
