Cardiac Nurses at Heart of Patient Care

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), one American dies of cardiovascular disease every 35 seconds, and the disease is the number one killer of both American men and women.

And with the rise in occurrence of cardiovascular disease, the function and role of cardiac care nursing as well as the demand for these critical care nurse specialists is soaring.

“Cardiac nurses are at the heart of cardiovascular disease recovery and prevention,” said Andrea Higham, director of The Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future. “They are also a vital resource for patients — teaching, motivating and arming them with the customized living plans and tools necessary to modify their lifestyles.”

From coronary care and intensive care units to cardiac rehabilitation and pre- and post-operative surgery care, there are a wide variety of settings in which cardiac nurses may choose to work. Also, many of these specialists work with patients and their families to help ease the transition from hospital to home care. Advanced positions in teaching, research and ward management are also an alternative for cardiac nurses.
