Clinical Nurse Specialist (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 9, 2015
As a Clinical Nurse Specialist for angiodynamics, I work very hard and travel often. My territory covers primarily the US and Canada but we have expanded to cover Europe as well. A typical week includes packing a carry on bag for the week and getting on an airplane to where ever the surgery is being performed. Once in the OR, I review images with the physicians and we collaborate on a procedural plan. I then work with the scrub tech to show them how to assemble the product. I speak to the nurses to make sure that all the supplies are available and then talk perfusion through what they will be expected to do during the procedure. After all of that is complete, we begin the procedure and I work with the physicians to achieve positive outcomes. There are 9 Clinical Specialists to cover this product so we rarely see each other and are heavily relied upon to be self sufficient and highly organized. The hardest part of the job is the travel requirement. The most enjoyable part of this job is the fact that we change and save lives. I have learned how orchestrate a procedure which requires multiple groups of people to collaborate. Overall, this is a highly satisfying job.
