Description

Because of the prevalence of cardiovascular disease, nurses must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to aid in its reduction. Recognizing patients at risk for acute cardiovascular conditions and taking the initiative to educate patients of the behavioral and non-behavioral cardiovascular risk factors for these conditions can enhance prevention and management strategies aimed to control the prevalence of the disease. In addition to using nursing education as a primary prevention strategy, nurses must also be aware of initial assessment and management strategies for patients with cardiovascular disease in the acute phase.

This course provides information to support nurses working across all healthcare settings who care for patients with acute cardiovascular disease. This course can serve as a reference for nurses working in cardiovascular areas or provide those desiring to work in cardiovascular areas with an introduction to comprehensive acute cardiovascular care. Nursing application points in the clinical setting are highlighted throughout the course to assist learners in identifying key issues in the care of patients with acute cardiovascular disease.

Western Schools is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
