Hello! 💫

Just wanted to see if anyone could recommend or share any good resources for a new Cardiology Nurse Practitioner ❤️.  This is my first job and I'm interested in getting resources that I can keep on hand or in my office -- looking to expand my knowledge base. 

Thanks 🤩

What are they going to be using you for? Notes in hospital? Office follow ups? 
 

 

 

cardiology secrets would be a good place to start. And the only ekg book you’ll ever need. (Actually name of the book). Read up on all the top ten cardio things in hospital or clinic. 
 

Assuming either way they will use you for more of the common cardio stuff like a fib, consult for XYZ OMG arrhythmia the day before, eval for aicd or pacemakers, lipid therapy, chf. Primary wanting opinion on blood thinners for whatever reason. So up to date all those.

Thank you!  The plan is for me to start with office visits and then expand into more in hospital follow-up/consults and in office testing/procedures.

I would like to do more reading -- especially on EKGs, common cardiac issues.  I wasn't sure if there was a go-to standby book to have for the common issues.  Thank you for the EKG book recommendation, will look up now!

So mostly follow up for anticoag or antiplt issues, lipids, screening for who needs stress and which stress test or lhc etc. med optimization for chf and probably some anti arrhythmia therapy chronic management, going over echo results. 
 

UpToDate or dynamed or whatever the practice gets you for free would be good for point of care reference...and cardiology secrets for general knowledge. EKG book is good but they’ll prob have cardio look at most the ekg sometimes they can be tough. Just takes time. Reading up on diff types of stress tests on Internet is helpful.

I suppose for a book to have on desk they have like current cardiology but POC apps have taken the place of many books as things change quickly especially blood thinner studies LOL
