Nursing Professor Edits New Cardiovascular Textbook

OCTOBER 21, 2015 – Kelley M. Anderson, PhD, RN, FNP, assistant professor of nursing at the School of Nursing & Health Studies, is editor of a brand new textbook that covers a range of acute and chronic cardiovascular conditions.

The Advanced Practice Nurse Cardiovascular Clinician, published by Springer Publishing Company (October 2015), contains 36 chapters, a number of which are authored by Anderson’s faculty and professional colleagues and Georgetown nursing alumnae.

“Focusing on the interprofessional team, this cardiovascular resource provides evidence-based knowledge and guidance for advanced practice nurses in a variety of care settings. Its clinically relevant and directly applicable information is presented in an accessible and well-organized format,” according to the book’s description.

Multiple Specialty Focus

The 816-page textbook (ISBN 9780826138576) “. . . encompasses clinical findings, diagnostic testing, state-of-the-art procedures, and therapeutic interventions commonly used in inpatient and outpatient clinical cardiology.”

Anderson notes that there is not another book about cardiovascular clinical practice for the advanced practice nurse. This book seeks to meet the needs of faculty and students across APRN specialties.

“It is specifically designed to meet the informational needs of advanced practice registered nurse providers and students, including family nurse practitioners, adult gerontology acute care nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, and clinical nurse specialists,” the description says.
