The nurses at Arkansas Heart Hospital are an integral part of our team – they care for patients at some of the most critical moments of their health journeys, educate patients and caregivers on how to manage new heart conditions, and walk alongside them through their toughest battles. We hold our team to a high standard and recognize the importance of lifelong learning, which is why we offer continual learning and certification opportunities for our nurses.
Over the course of 14 weeks, nurses in our Introduction to Cardiovascular Nursing internship learn how to apply their nursing knowledge in a cardiac hospital. Using an interactive approach with classroom teaching, expert preceptors and hands-on skill mastery, nurses grow from novices to expert critical care nurses. Arkansas Heart Hospital also partners with the city-wide LRCCP program to help our nurses further their careers with a career ladder pathway.
As nurses work toward their National Certification, we provide support and preparatory courses for CCRN, CMC, CNOR, RCIS and TCRN certification. National Certification is also recognized with one of the best packages in the region.
We’re always excited to welcome new nurses to our team, and new graduate nurse hiring will begin for the year on October 1. Learn more and apply here.
