The Society of Pediatric Cardiovascular Nurses is the only international organization dedicated to expanding nursing knowledge and expertise in the care of children and young adults with heart disease.

Welcome


SPCN was founded in 1985 by four nurses committed to support the common interests and needs of nurses who are involved in the care of children with heart disease. Now, 30 years later and nearly 400 members strong, our purpose remains the same – to share ideas and resources, discuss common problems, and collaborate in nursing research about families and patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) from fetal diagnosis to adulthood. Members come from almost every state in the United States and eleven countries. Our online membership directory lists all current members with their specific areas of interest and employment. Many SPCN members are nationally respected leaders in the field of cardiovascular nursing. Some are principal investigators actively studying their individual or multi-site research questions related to CHD. This directory is available only to members on this site. We welcome new members. Nurses interested in membership may join online. Please go to the Become a Member tab on this site, complete your member profile, and pay for your membership that is only $20.00/year using PayPal.

Members have online access to current information on conferences related to cardiovascular and pediatric nursing; links to related organizations; papers from member presentations/publications/ongoing research; and new job postings from centers around the country advertising positions in cardiovascular nursing. The SPCN Directory provides networking opportunities with nurses with similar interests and positions.

Our annual meeting coincides with the Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association held each November in a variety of locations. This meeting includes an educational component in addition to our business discussion and election of officers. There is also an opportunity to network with SPCN members. Information on the Annual Meeting is published on this web site. All of our Board positions are voluntary. We encourage the active participation of all members.
