Message from the Chair

The mission of the Council on Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing (CVSN) is to accelerate the discovery, translation and application of knowledge to promote and improve overall cardiovascular health. Our efforts focus on contributing nursing’s biopsychosocial expertise to American Heart Association's (AHA) global agenda to promote ideal cardiovascular health, quality of life, and heart healthy lifestyles and environments.

Diversity Task Force

The American Heart Association’s Council on Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing (CVSN) recently created a Diversity Task Force. The overall aim is to increase representation of underrepresented minority CVSN colleagues within our membership and on all CVSN committees, including leadership.

To this end, we are aiming to invite/sponsor 10 underrepresented minority colleagues to attend AHA Scientific Sessions in New Orleans this fall (November 12-16) and attend the CVSN Annual Business Meeting and Awards Dinner. We are offering complimentary registration to Scientific Sessions and the CVSN Council Dinner. We are interested in any underrepresented minority CVSN colleagues; however early career faculty would be very welcome. This initiative is also directed at recruiting APNs and staff nurses (this does not have to be limited to doctorally-prepared faculty).
