Position : Med Surg Telemetry Nurse
In general, M/S nurses provide care and treatment to ill, injured, and recovering adults.
The medical surgical nurse must be able to assess patient condition, administer medications, change dressings, monitor vital signs, keep records, and provide patients with support and education.
Some med-surg nurses choose to become more specialized within the broad field of med-surg nursing, pursuing subspecialties such as orthopedics, neurology, wound care, and oncology.
Although all medical-surgical nursing involves bedside care, each position is different.
Med surg travel nurses will benefit from being creative, quick-thinking, and good communicators.
