*Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Cardiovascular nurses care for people with heart disease and interact with their patients' families. They may monitor and treat acutely ill patients, or they may focus on cardiac rehabilitation—helping patients make lifestyle changes to prevent the worsening of their disease. Cardiovascular nursing requires detailed knowledge of a complex and ever-changing field, as well as exceptional critical care nursing skills.
