Would being a former CCU RN and medical transcriptionist help me become a monitor tech?

Look, EKG Recognition is a 12 week course you can take at any hospital for about $60. If your lucky, they will hire you. Most hospitals dont have the need for more than a handful of monitor techs as there are only so many floors that have telemetry. My hospital has only 3 areas. The telemetry floor, the ICU and the Oncology floor. So only 3 per any given shift for the entire hospital. Its a tough job to get but an easy one if you like sitting for 12hrs a day.

The ryhthms are not too difficult if you remember the shape and origin of each beat, whether atrial, ventricular, and there is a bit of measuring of the different complexes of the beat; P wave, QRS, ST-wave, etc, and then learning to discern changes in the rhythm, what is dangerous and what just needs to be watched. I was a CCU nurse for 15 years and EKGs are fascinating.
