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.

Job Skills / Requirements:

  • Valid BLS and ACLS from the American Heart Association
  • A valid professional license within the state of practice
  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN) credentials are recommended and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
  • Other specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
  • Proof of right to work in the United States
  • CVICU experience in a hospital setting

Travel Nursing Jobs in Georgia

What happens when you are a wanderer by nature, and a nurse by trade? You become a travel nurse, of course! Travel healthcare jobs with Elite Specialty Staffing are plentiful and varied. Most travel nurse assignments are eight to 26 weeks in length. This period is long enough to learn about where you are and fully experience it, but temporary enough to satisfy your wanderlust!

Have you spent any time in the South? Georgia is a beautiful, welcoming southern state with lots to offer you. Travel nursing jobs in Georgia can be found in the big cities like Atlanta or Gainesville. If this is your first time working as a travel nurse in Georgia, you must spend some time checking out the capital city of Atlanta. There you will be able to get a good taste of southern flavors and Georgia spirits through the local fare, music, and art. If you’re into shopping, spend some time perusing the high-end shops that you will find in Phipps Plaza. You can also spend the day touring museums such as the High Museum of Art or the Civil War Museum. Hit up the Fox Theater to catch some of the most renowned comedians, concerts, and stage productions. If you enjoy the outdoors, during one of your days off, head over to Piedmont Park for a picnic where you can enjoy lush green grass and a gorgeous view of the city’s skyline.

If big city life isn’t your thing, Georgia has lovely beautiful towns and mid-sized cities across its countryside.

If you’re a history buff, you will have lots of exploring to do in Georgia. Discover and learn about the Civil War sites or the coastal forts that date back to the 1700s. Wander around Savannah, which is Georgia’s oldest town. Experience the great outdoors in one of more than 40 state-maintained parks where you can do several activities, including hiking, climbing canyons, sighting alligators, whitewater rafting, kayaking and even try your hand at archery. Get excited about sports and follow the success of one of Georgia’s professional sports teams, the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Hawks, or the Atlanta Falcons.

Georgia travel nurse pay is generally the highest in the big city of Atlanta, but compensation for all travel nurses in Georgia varies due to skills and certifications. Georgia travel nurses love their assignments not only because of all the wonderful things to experience outside of their work but because of the warm and welcoming people in the peach state. Their southern hospitality will have you feeling settled and confident in no time.
