SPCN started Heart Month advocating with AHA for Go Red!

SPCN-Society of Pediatric Cardiovascular Nurses

Happy Heart Month to all SPCN Nurses! And don’t forget to Go Red on 2/4/2022. The SPCN annual meeting is held in conjunction with the AHA Scientific Sessions plus, with our Pediatric CV Nursing Committee, we collaborate with AHA’s Council on CV & Stroke Nursing, so let’s join the #WearRedDay this Friday! Let’s go! #WearRedDay is this Friday. So crank up the tunes, get on your feet and rock your red for women’s heart health.

February is known for heart celebrations, and American Heart Month is a way of increasing awareness of heart disease while also promoting prevention and wellness. Our organization is the only one to encompass nurses internationally from ALL areas of nursing:  clinical practice at all levels (bedside nurses, surgical and procedural nurses, coordinators, advanced practice nurses), research, academia, and various levels of management and leadership. Some of these areas are well represented within SPCN, while others are sparse within our membership. The better representation we have across these areas, the more likely we will be able to expand our impact and accomplish our mission.

As President of SPCN, I would like to challenge each current member to recruit at least 2 new members to join our organization. This special recruitment promotion, ‘Recruit 2 and Get 1 Free’, will allow all current members to receive a FREE year of membership after recruiting at least 2 new members to join SPCN from Feb 1-28. To receive this bonus, the new members must notify our treasurer, Ruth Lemus (RuLemus@chla.usc.edu), who they were recruited by. This payment will go into effect with the next membership renewal date.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to colleagues and friends to increase our membership and expand our communication with nurses from all areas of cardiac nursing. Now more than ever, we need to support one another, so reach out today!
