Cardiovascular Nursing Practice Standards

Published on:

The Canadian Council of Cardiovascular Nurses (CCCN) is the voice of cardiovascular nursing in Canada. This publication, Cardiovascular Nursing Practice Standards 2023, reflects the thinking of the specialty practice of cardiovascular nursing and should be reviewed in conjunction with provincial and institutional nursing policies, procedures, and practices. 

As the voice of cardiovascular nursing in Canada, we assert that the scope of practice for a cardiovascular nurse requires specialty knowledge and skills. Such knowledge and skills enable the delivery of cardiovascular education, encourage primary prevention, assist in cardiovascular disease detection, and offer treatment to patients, families, communities, and populations. The cardiovascular nursing scope and practice are rooted in research and evidence-based practice.

Acquiring the specialty knowledge required to be a competent nurse working in the field of cardiovascular nursing is the responsibility of the individual nurse. The CCCN strongly recommends all cardiovascular nurses become members of the CCCN. This membership has numerous benefits and one of the most valuable is access to the website www.cccn.ca to assist with a commitment to life-long learning.
