For those involved in the field of Cardiac Care Nursing, it is not unusual to provide patients with heart related problems the care needed inside of their own homes after a bypass or pacemaker type of surgery.

Cardiac Care Nursing often includes nurses who work as specialized Critical Care Nurses within a hospital setting. Due to the nature of heart disease, RN’s that have their BSN, with prior experience in defibrillation, electrocardiogram telemetry monitoring, and advanced cardiac life-support techniques are normally preferred for these home-care positions.

Specialty areas of Cardiac Care Nursing include by age-segmentations for children or senior care, with unique specialists found in fields such as cardiac research, cardiac rehabilitations, and within intensive care hospital settings.

While patients with heart disease often live long fulfilling lives, Cardiac Care Nursing options often include job situations where patient deaths occur.
