We hope you'll join us!

For the Heart of MN: A Cardiovascular Nursing Conference is a continuing education activity designed to educate nurses on the most current, leading-edge information in cardiovascular care.

Topics will include med therapy compliance, women’s heart health, pulmonary arterial hypertension basics, transferring critically ill patients, smoking cessation education, a structural heart update, referring to a vascular surgeon, end of life care in cardiology, and care for the caregiver.

This conference is unique in that it is being offered in the Brainerd Lakes area and is geared toward nurses who may have limited access to high-quality training due to serving a rural area. Faculty include pharmacists, advanced practice providers and physicians.
