CVICU Travel Nursing Jobs
A Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) nurse, is a highly-specialized nursing job. Nurses who work in CVICU have chosen a career in a demanding and high-intensity setting. Cardiac ICU nurses must adapt quickly to their ever-changing work environment and be able to think under pressure.
There is no doubting the importance of working with patients who are recovering from serious cardiovascular surgeries. Common surgeries a cardiac ICU nurse will see include but are certainly not limited to:
- Open heart surgery
- Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair
Recording medical histories of patients, performing diagnostic tests and analyzing their results, administrating medications, effectively communicating with a blend of medical professionals who perform different functions in the CVICU, educating patients and their family members about lifestyle and diet habits that can promote healing and continued health are all common duties a cardiac ICU travel nurse will perform.
Quick-thinking and adaptability are immensely useful traits for a CVICU nurse. The often times fast-paced and high-intensity setting also requires detail-oriented nurses who maintain order. Having control over their environment and attention to detail save minutes and seconds when decisions need to be made quickly, or a patient’s condition changes suddenly.
Travel nurses who want to specialize in CVICU, should consider taking positions in medical-surgical units and ICUs to build a foundation of experience toward the CVICU. Special certifications for this specialty are highly encouraged, and by some facilities they are required.
CVICU travel nursing jobs are available across the country, because this specialization is in demand and is so critical to a smoothly running CVICU. Building a travel nurse career in this specialization could open doors to work in some of the nation's best hospitals and experience life in exciting cities.
