What is a Cardiology Nurse?

Cardiology nurses, also called cardiac nurses or cardiovascular nurses, are registered nurses who specialize in preventing and treating conditions involving the heart. These specialists work in a variety of settings, caring for medical or surgical patients with a variety of heart problems. Depending on their focus, cardiology nurses may care for patients recovering from a heart attack, suffering from coronary artery disease, or recuperating from heart bypass or pacemaker surgery, among others. Historically, heart disease has been the leading cause of death in the United States, so cardiology nurses remain in high demand and often find their work challenging yet rewarding.

What does a cardiology nurse do?

The daily tasks of a cardiology nurse greatly depend on their work setting, but they often care for heart patients or those recovering from various cardiac procedures. No matter the setting, they monitor vital signs, especially heart rate and rhythms. Cardiology nurses help patients deal with discomfort and provide ongoing care while working closely with a cardiologist. They also assist patients with rehabilitation following hospitalization related to cardiac illness. Other common tasks include:

  • Administering heart medications

  • Inserting and removing IV drips

  • Monitoring electrocardiogram readings

  • Performing stress-test evaluations and health assessments

  • Performing ongoing assessment of cardiac function

  • Interpreting results of cardiac testing

  • Providing postoperative pain assessment and management

  • Assisting with defibrillation

  • Educating patients and their families on heart health

Where do cardiology nurses work?

Cardiology nurses often work in hospitals as part of a team in the cardiology department or surgical unit. Based on their specialty, they may work in various areas of the hospital. Cardiac nurses providing direct care to adult cardiac patients may work in cardiac focused units, progressive care, or telemetry. Alternatively, cardiac nurses who provide direct care to cardiac surgery patients may work on post-cardiovascular  or cardiothoracic surgery units. Cardiology nurses also may work in an outpatient cardiologist’s office or cardiovascular rehab center. Demand has also increased for cardiac nurses in community health centers, medical clinics, long-term care facilities, and home healthcare agencies.

What skills make a good cardiology nurse?

Good cardiology nurses have a thorough comprehension of normal cardiac anatomy and physiology and advanced knowledge of cardiac diseases and conditions and the diagnostic and treatment methods for them. They possess keen assessment and monitoring skills, combined with crucial soft skills like critical thinking, problem-solving, and crisis management. To truly excel, good cardiology nurses effectively perform as part of a team and have strong communication skills to promote coordination between healthcare professionals and convey important information to patients and their families.

How to become a Cardiology Travel Nurse

To specialize in cardiac nursing, prospective candidates must first become a registered nurse. For this specialty, an associate degree in nursing is the minimum requirement, but many hospitals prefer at least a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Graduates of accredited nursing programs must pass the NCLEX-RN exam and fulfill all other state licensing requirements to earn their RN license. Cardiac nurses must have Basic Life Support certification and most likely Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support certification.

To advance as a cardiology nurse, RNs can consider pursuing a Master of Science in Nursing or seeking out opportunities to provide more specialized care. After gaining experience, they also should become certified. The American Board of Cardiovascular Medicine administers the Board Certified Cardiac Nurse in non-acute cardiology care (CVRN-BC) and Cardiovascular Nursing Level II – Board Certified Cardiac Nurse in acute cardiology care (CVRN-BC Level II). The American Nurses Credentialing Center also offers Cardiac Vascular Nurse – Board Certified credentialing. Most travel cardiology nursing positions require at least two years of recent cardiac care experience.

What certifications are commonly held by Cardiology nurses?

Cardiology nurses may hold Basic Life Support (BLS) or Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), among others.

Which certifications are best for Cardiology nurses?

Some healthcare employers may prefer cardiology nurse job candidates with Cardiac Vascular Nursing Certification (CV-BC), and some may even require specific professional certifications.

How does having a Cardiac Vascular Nursing Certification (CV-BC) increase my value as a Cardiology nurse job candidate?

Having a Cardiac Vascular Nursing Certification (CV-BC) validates your knowledge and skills as a cardiology nurse and your dedication to continuing your education in your chosen field. All of which makes you a more desirable job candidate to healthcare employers.
