  • All Registered Nurse candidates must have have or be able to obtain a valid professional license within the state of practice, proof of right to work in the United States, two years' experience in a hospital setting, and valid BLS. Specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific registered nurse and travel nurse positions.
  • RNs in telemetry nursing jobs use high-tech equipment to monitor patient conditions and progress. Tele nurses typically take care of patients recently released from the ICU who are often at risk for developing complications; these nurses, therefore, must be able to take appropriate action when problems arise. Common conditions that require telemetry nurses include cardiac surgery, renal failure, COPD, sleep disorders, neurological problems, epilepsy, and cancer. Duties of telemetry nurses include careful review of the patient's vitals, maintenance of telemetry equipment, administration of medication, and communication with the patient and family. Because patients require round-the-clock monitoring, telemetry RNs often work long hours, night shifts, weekends, and holidays. Consequently, telemetry nurses are in high demand and their wages are above average.
  • Illinois travel nursing jobs reveal quaint towns and big cities - Chicago for one. The Windy City is home to the Bears, the Sears Tower, Chicago style pizza and thousands of great restaurants, shops and galleries. Illinois travel nurses can take in a Cubs game and a Chicago-style hotdog at Wrigley Field, one of America's oldest ballparks. The birthplace of U.S. Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan, Illinois has plenty of historical 'sites' to see and is rich with Midwestern charm.
