Nursing (Advanced Cardiac Care)

This course is designed to ensure that nursing professionals are well placed to deal with the globalised challenges arising in current and future cardiac practice. They include changes in population and demographic trends, shifts in patterns of health/illness and wellbeing, and political, professional and organisational working cultures. The course adopts an evidence-informed nursing approach by reviewing, synthesising and incorporating contemporary professional and political drivers to ensure that the profession remains dynamic, proactive and responsive in delivering safe, confident, competent and compassionate quality care and excellence in cardiac nursing practice. This course offers experienced cardiac nurses the opportunity to develop their personal and professional autonomy within their areas of practice. The course develops: leadership skills to promote the professional voice of nursing and to disseminate new knowledge and skills to enhance patient/client care; advanced knowledge and skills to facilitate person centred care and to enhance the patient/client experience; advanced decision making skills and application of nursing practice in complex, demanding and unpredictable environments; intellectual and professional independence; knowledge and skills to inform and advance nursing practice; a critical understanding of research methodologies and evidence based practice to contribute to the generation of knowledge for advanced nursing practice.
