Nursing Education

Nurses from all over the country are interested in working with the teams in the Heart Centre.

Nurses from all over the country are interested in working with the teams in the Heart Centre.  Why?  They want to be part of a team that is internationally known and consistently on the cutting edge of advancements in cardiac care. And they want to experience the rich inter-professional environment at the Heart Centre. We offer a range of supportive initiatives for nurses to grow and develop as professionals:

  • Provide support for our nurses to pursue post-graduate specialty education in critical care
  • Monthly Heart Centre Nursing Rounds (webcast across Canada – click here to be added to the mailing list)

Nursing Rounds Schedule 2017

  • Heart Centre Nursing Education Days

Our next Education Day is scheduled for June 9th 2017.  The theme is: "Is 90 the new 70?  Cardiac Care in the elderly".

The day will be held at Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre at UBC.
