Nurses and Allied Health Professionals from all over the country are interested in working with the teams in the Heart Centre.
Nursing/Allied Health Education
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)
