Located on the 5th floor of Vanderbilt University Hospital.

The environment on our unit is fast-paced, challenging, and team-oriented.

We care for adult patients ranging in age from 18 to 118 who are being treated for cardiovascular conditions.

Our patients are unique because there are so many advanced therapies and devices that could potentially be utilized in their care and our nurses become experts in using them all.

One of the perks of working on our unit is the incredible teamwork needed every day. We work hard but when a patient goes home due to the extraordinary care we provided, it’s extremely rewarding.

Our nurses are successful because they have a desire to learn, strong critical thinking skills, and persistence.

We orient new nurses to our unit by providing a 9-10 week orientation with a dedicated preceptor team complemented by a proven program of critical care courses.
