The Cardiovascular Registered Nurse uses clinical judgment skills to diagnose and treat patient responses to actual or potential health conditions. The RN is a critical member of the Cardiovascular Unit (CVU) which cares for over 4000 cardiology patients annually; procedures including PTCA, stents, TAVR, MitraClip and bi-ventricular pacemakers. Approximately 300 open heart surgery patients (18-24 hours post-op) are discharged from this unit. The CVU also specializes in the care of patients with congestive heart failure and electrophysiology studies. Our NISUS research department manages many national clinical trials using CVU.
The CVU has been awarded a Silver level Beacon Award in 2014 and was redesigned in 2017 by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN). This accomplishment represents one of many significant milestones on CVU's journey to optimal outcomes and exceptional patient care that could not be achieved without our exceptional RNs.
