What does a cardiac cath lab nurse do?

The primary role of a cardiac cath lab nurse is to assist with catheterizations, but they also help with stent placements, inserting defibrillators and pacemakers, and other cardiac-related procedures. They must be able to assist in circulating and scrub cardiac cath nursing roles and always be prepared to intervene with lifesaving procedures should patients experience bleeding or serious side effects during or after cardiac procedures. CCL nurses continuously update patient charts. 

Pre-procedure duties may include checking and monitoring vital signs, administering intravenous medications, and educating patients and their families about what to expect. During procedures, CCL nurses assist the doctor as needed, handle ECG and vital sign monitoring, and may operate ventilators or other medical equipment. They perform post-procedure patient monitoring, watching for signs of infection or side effects, and provide aftercare instructions and patient education concerning activities, lifestyle, and medication.

Where do cardiac cath lab nurses work?

CCL nurses typically work in cardiac cath labs within large hospitals, which are areas specifically set aside to specialize in procedures dealing with the heart. They may also work in outpatient cath labs and private clinics.

What skills make a good cardiac cath lab nurse?

Cardiac cath lab nurses have advanced critical care skills with extensive knowledge of hemodynamics, arrhythmias, and 12-lead EKG. They have enhanced knowledge of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, cardiac pharmacology, and emergency cardiac interventions. CCL nurses excel at being a team player and have the ability to incorporate their skills and abilities with the skills and abilities of other team members. Being detail-oriented and organized also top the list of desirable skills for good CCL nurses.

How to become a Cardiac Cath Lab Travel Nurse

Becoming a cardiac cath lab travel nurse requires rigorous post-licensure training and clinical experience. First, they must become an RN by earning an associate or a bachelor’s degree in nursing from an accredited nursing program, passing the NCLEX-RN, and completing all state licensing requirements. They must also earn Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support certifications.

While it isn’t generally required, it’s suggested that prospective CCL nurses earn Cardiac-Vascular Nursing board certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Most travel positions require that CCL nurses have one to two years of recent cath lab experience.
