In Cardiovascular Intensive Care Units (CVICU) across the country, Acute Care Nurse Practitioners (ACNPs) are helping to innovate and improve patient outcomes. If you thrive in a complex, fast-paced environment, career growth is just a heartbeat away.
Acute Care Nurse Practitioners who work in the CVICU are first-line healthcare providers with critical patient management responsibilities. Your ability to think critically, communicate with an interdisciplinary care team, and focus on patient outcomes can open the door to career opportunities with a lot of autonomy.
The CVICU is considered by many to be one of the most specialized and advanced areas of healthcare today. In this environment, ACNPs not only manage the care of critically-ill, high-risk patients with acute cardiovascular disease. They also provide ongoing leadership and education to patients and staff, implement quality improvement initiatives, and often participate in transformative clinical research.
Those who work in the role enjoy being continually challenged. With advances in technology, and evolving care models, the key to success in the ACNP CVICU role is learning to embrace change while staying focused on superior patient care.
