This program provides an added credential (CHFN) beyond licensure and demonstrates, by examination, that the registered nurse has acquired specific knowledge and adheres to specialized nursing standards. AAHFN recently released the Core Curriculum Review, which is not only a study guide for the CHFN exam but is also a heart failure nursing reference tool. In using guidelines and evidence-based data, the Review outlines the process of planning, implementing, and evaluating care for heart failure patients.
"Heart failure is generating increased national awareness and the heart failure nurse is at the center of patient care. These talented, caring professionals offer a completely unique skill set and certification confirms that their knowledge and expertise in heart failure care is second to none," says Marie Galvao, MSN, ANP-BC, CHFN, AAHFN President.
