Case Management Nursing

Nurses in the field of case management are responsible for providing care to patients who receive long-term treatment. Case management nurses also usually specialize in one area, such as pediatrics, geriatrics, or HIV/AIDS; and they work closely with patients, doctors, and other caregivers to coordinate care and manage costs. In many cases, the patients cared for by case management nurses have complex needs. They might see a variety of specialists or need frequent treatments or procedures. Case management nursing is a complex and multi-faceted field in which nurses are likely to have a long-term working relationship with patients or clients.

Cardiac Care Nursing

Cardiac care nurses, or cardiovascular nurses, play an important role in healthcare. They specialize in caring for patients that suffer from conditions such as heart attacks or chronic heart disease. These nurses not only have to be experts on cardiovascular function, but they must also be knowledgeable about any conditions resulting from heart disease or malfunction and know how to help patients understand their conditions. Experience is a definite advantage in cardiovascular nursing, as these nurses often care for patients facing life or death situations, but it is never too early or late to pursue an career in this field.
