Cath Lab Nurse Duties
Cath lab nurses are mainly responsible for assisting doctors in a catheterization lab. Duties include assisting physicians in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory with diagnostic and interventional procedures like cardiac catheterizations, valvuloplasties, and angioplasties. Other procedures may include assisting the physician with implants like pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). This type of nurse must be detailed oriented as they will be assisting with and performing many interventional procedures on a life or death basis. A cath lab nurse is the patient’s number one advocate and the first to greet the patient once they enter the lab. You will be required to inform and educate the patient about what procedure is planned and help answer any questions they may have. The cath lab nurse will remain with the patient before, during and after the procedure until full recovery is achieved.
Cath Lab Nurse Education Requirements
To become a cardiac catheterization lab nurse, one must have first completed all the necessary requirements to be a registered nurse. Registered nurses must have an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in nursing, as well as pass all necessary state and board certifications for practice. For a registered nurse to be accepted as a CCL nurse, they might be required to possess a BSN, as well as hands-on experience in the lab itself. A cath lab nurse needs to possess the skills to be able to assist a patient in an emergency situation, which requires them to be compassionate, quick on their feet and good at critical decision-making.
Cath Lab Nurse Job Market
Since a cath lab nurse possesses many of the same requirements and qualifications as a registered nurse, the salaries can be comparable and usually depends on state and city. Nurses with more skill and experience tend to make better salaries. If a hospital is high in demand, a cath lab nurse has the potential to earn more while working in a more permanent position.
