CCU Nursing / Coronary / Cardiac

CCU Nursing / Coronary / Cardiac is available for Nurses who are involved in the care of the cardiac critical care patients who may have a myriad of acute heart-related health issues, often resulting in planned or emergent surgical intervention. Many of these patients are post-open heart surgery patients that require vigilant constant monitoring, having had a CABG, valve replacement, or other surgical repair of the cardiac system.
