About our organization
In 1983, Northeast Pediatric Cardiology Nurses Association was founded by a group of dedicated and forward-thinking cardiology nurses. They realized that no organization existed to provide professional enrichment and support for professional nurses caring for children with congenital or acquired heart disease, and they envisioned the benefits that such an organization could provide to its members.
The wisdom and experience of our founders created a mission for our organization that is still in effect today:
In the field of nursing, and especially within the pediatric cardiology specialty, there are many challenges. From staying abreast of the latest medical developments, to continuing education and training, to simply providing a network of support, NPCNA exists to be a resource for its members.
Today, our membership reflects the diversity of pediatric cardiovascular nursing. Our members represent over 28 northeast regional cardiovascular programs, as well as programs from the mid-west and south. This diversity in practice and the broad spectrum of our membership provide opportunities to learn, explore, and be part of the advances in nursing care of patients with congenital or acquired heart disease.
Through our annual conference, scholarship fund, research grants, and online forums we bring nurses together to learn, share, grow and connect with other professionals in this unique field. Because together, we can help each other while advancing our profession, fulfilling our mission and caring for our patients.
