Nursing/Allied Health Education

Nurses and Allied Health Professionals 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)

Please see below to access the Rounds Recording.
