    Hi, I work on a cardiothoracic surgury unit and CTS service at our hospital employs 2 NPs (both FNP I think) one has EXTENSIVE cardiology experience as an RN (15+ years). The other has about 5 years RN experience. These NPs round on CTS patients in the hospital, perform minor procedures such as chest tube removal, and work with patients in the office for follow up visits. I am starting my FNP program this Spring in the hopes of following in their footsteps. You can find more information on these two very impressive NPs at Heart Surgery Specialists of Northern Michigan.

    I'm doing my preceptorship on the CVICU. The CV Surgeon there has a FNP that works with him for pre and post-OP follow-up. She works both in The clinic and rounds in the hospital.
