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 cardiovascular disease and taking the initiative to educate patients of the behavioral and nonbehavioral cardiovascular risk factors can enhance other primary prevention strategies aimed to control the prevalence of the disease. In addition to nursing education used as a primary prevention strategy, nurses must also be aware of secondary prevention therapies aimed to minimize the burdens of known disease and complications associated with cardiovascular disease.

This course provides information to support nurses working across all healthcare settings who care for patients at risk for or who already have 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 cardiovascular care. The curriculum begins with a foundation of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology. When normal cardiovascular functioning is understood, the learner can then move forward to understanding pathophysiology. The content of the chapters on cardiovascular medications and risk factors is referenced throughout the rest of the text as cardiovascular disease processes are discussed. Nursing application points in the clinical setting are highlighted throughout the text to assist in identifying key issues in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease.

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