Cardiac nurse program to be launched (USA)

Cardiac nurse program to be launched (USA)Central Maine Medical Center and the Central Maine Medical Center College of Nursing and Health Professions are launching a specialty cardiac nurse residency program. The program will provide an educational pathway for graduate nurses to gain the knowledge and experience needed to provide acute cardiovascular nursing care. Scheduled to begin in June 2013, it will foster professional development based on the individual nurse resident's learning needs. The nurse resident will begin the program under the guidance of a primary preceptor. Program content, which includes instruction from College of Nursing faculty, consists of a core curriculum, standards of practice, and a cardiac/critical care course. After completing the 12-week program, the nurse residents will continue their critical care orientation under the guidance of a mentor for a year. The program will be offered for positions in the CMMC Intensive Care Unit and the Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute Single-Stay Unit
