Travel Cath Lab RN Jobs

Cath lab nurses care for patients in the cardiac unit and play an essential part in catheterization procedures. If you already have experience in this field and wish to advance your career while traveling across the United States, consider a position with Trustaff.

Cath Lab RN Qualifications

Understanding the ins and outs of a cath lab nurse position can take time — even when stationed at the same location. To help you feel the most comfortable in new places, Trustaff requires future travelers to already have one to two years of experience in the catheterization lab. Additionally, we ask that you have a currently active nursing license or other accreditation in the state where you wish to work before applying.
