Hello!

Welcome to the website of the Council on Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing (CVSN). It is an honor and privilege to serve as Chair of the Council on Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing (CVSN). I am looking forward to working with all of you to build upon what previous leaders have accomplished.

Through the valued expertise of our members we are able to accelerate the discovery, interpretation, and application of scientific knowledge to enhance cardiovascular health and treat cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  The CVSN Council plays an essential role in the overall mission of AHA/ASA through helping to develop scientific statements and advisories, determining the nature and scope of professional education activities, providing scientific expertise and conducting research as well as promoting translation/application of new knowledge and evidence-base practices in clinical settings. CVSN Council activities are focused on reducing cardiovascular and stroke health disparities, advancing cardiovascular and stroke health of patients and families across the lifespan, providing compassionate cardiovascular and stroke end-of-life care and delivering culturally competent and literacy-sensitive care.

Our current strategic plan (2017-2020) has the following priorities. These priorities help steer our Council forward.

  • Exploration Priority #1: Write papers to disseminate knowledge that advances the science and practice of cardiovascular and stroke nursing.
  • Operational Priority #1: Expand and diversify CVSN national and international membership and retention.
  • Operational Priority #2: Foster and facilitate a culture of inclusion for the CVSN Council.

I invite you to explore our website—http://professional.heart.org/cvsncouncil—for the myriad of opportunities that exist through our Council.

The CVSN Council is in a strong position to make a difference for the AHA and for the public and patients it serves. If you are not already a member, I do hope you will consider joining. We have a lot to accomplish, but with the work of all our committees and you, I know we can do it. Providing me with continued support and guidance are Dr. Deb Chyun, Immediate Past Chair; Dr. Cindy Dougherty, Vice Chair and the other members of our dedicated Leadership Committee.

I welcome your input. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at nancy.artinian@hc.msu.edu.

Sincerely,
 

Nancy T. Artinian, PhD RN FAHA, FPCNA, FAAN
Chair, Council on Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing
