What certifications are required to be a cardiac nurse?

There is no cardiac Nurse license, there is an RN license and then specialty certifications. What certification is required depends on the facility. Most don't require anything beyond your RN license and ACLS. Obtaining a specialty certification is usually preferred, although with many certifications you can't even attempt to gain a certification until you have worked on that specialty unit typically for a year.
