With diversified services and care required in cardiovascular management, and the rapid development in these areas, nursing professionals need to be equipped with knowledge and skills to manage patient care efficiently.
As part of the National University Health System (NUHS), the National University Heart Centre, Singapore (NUHCS) utilises the comprehensive training capabilities and facilities within the NUHS to develop their nurses within the needed knowledge and skills.
From training at Diploma level to Masters and even attainment of a Doctorate in nursing studies, the resources within the NUHS affords opportunities for nurses to become an important and integral part of a cardiovascular management team.
The specific groups of cardiovascular nurses occur through our comprehensive nursing programmes, and capitalising on unique set-up of our critical care nursing laboratory for simulated training. This helps to build a strong and capable team of nurses within our centre.
The Nurses-Centric Training Programmes aim to train and develop our registered nurses so that they can provide up-to-date and holistic care to our patients.
The Interprofessional Training Programmes bring together healthcare professionals from different job groups and collectively develop their competencies through a series of simulations and workshops.
