Cardiology has progressively incorporated new advances in genetics and molecular biology studies. Cardiovascular nurses must continually update their knowledge and techniques to incorporate them into their daily practice.

The contexts in which Cardiovascular Nursing is involved are innumerable, as the factors that specifically concern this specialty include population aging, social, economic and consumer changes, and worsening air quality, among others. Healthcare systems must respond to the increase in clinical cases with an up-to-date perspective, addressing the growing complexities based on the latest scientific postulates.

During the program, healthcare professionals will update their knowledge in the treatment and care of patients diagnosed with the main cardiovascular pathologies, including diseases of the myocardium and pericardium, coronary artery disease
and arrhythmias.

The Professional Master’s Degree in Cardiovascular Nursing aims to refresh and update the professional’s skills in the field of cardiology. TECH has a teaching team of practicing cardiology specialists, with careers dedicated to specialization and the pursuit of innovative medical techniques, and a commitment to providing nurses with material that combines current theory and its application in practical cases. The entire syllabus is designed in such a way that it can be viewed, studied and practiced, with self-knowledge exercises from anywhere, since the teaching is 100% online.

You will get up to speed on the main acute cardiovascular syndromes, as well as acute coronary syndromes, left and right heart failure, among others"

This Professional Master’s Degree in Cardiovascular Nursing contains the most complete and up-to-date scientific program on the market. The most important features include:

You will have access to a library of contents created by specialists in Cardiology, with high-quality theoretical and practical content”


The syllabus of this program in Cardiovascular Nursing is divided into 10 modules and will be taught progressively over 12 months. Thanks to this structure, the nurse will have a global and specialized vision in each section, always linked to the learning axis of the use of tools in the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. The methodology used by teachers and TECH is the Relearning method. This educational facilitates the acquisition of knowledge by repeating the concepts in the different contexts that take place in the program. In an organic way, the study of techniques and theoretical notions will become part of the nursing professionals, being able to incorporate them into their daily practices without hesitation.
