About this Unit:

​SNVMC Cardiac Telemetry is a 26-bed unit that supports Sentara's Mission to improve health every day. We care for a variety of ill patients with common diagnoses such as pneumonia, diabetes, CHF, renal failure, altered mental status, GI bleeds, stroke patients and those requiring cardiac NSTEMI work ups, monitoring, and further testing. The Cardiac Telemetry unit is a certified stroke unit. Our teams work alongside a designated pharmacist, respiratory therapist and are supported by several case managers and social workers who aid the RN in managing chronic disease processes and interventions. Patients are admitted by our Sentara Medical Group Hospitalists or are managed by our pulmonary group and other physician specialists. We have a high performing work ethic, a philosophy for transparency and accountability, and encourage everyone to make the right choice with their career goals and home-work life balance. The cardiac telemetry environment affords nurses an ideal opportunity to further pursue growth and development by establishing a firm foundation in acute care basic nursing, then transitioning from novice to nurse expert through the critical care growth and development program.

The Registered Nursing (RN) is responsible to perform a competent level of nursing care as demonstrated by the critical thinking model known as the nursing process.

The RN possesses clinical knowledge and skills to meet standards as required by specific clinical areas.
