Abstract

Cardiac nursing takes place within various spheres of health care, reaching into primary, secondary and tertiary care within theses, cardiac expertise falls within four domains: health promotion, cardiac prevention and rehabilitation, acute, chronic and episodic care and palliative care. This paper sets out the possibility for a staged development of the cardiac nurse, which could promote homogeneity in role, skill and practice. A framework ('Expert Cardiac Nurse Pathway') for the United Kingdom, is proposed here, and views on its usefulness throughout Europe are sought.
