The American Association of Heart Failure Nurses was formed with an intention in advancing nursing education and clinical practice. The goal of this association is to improve research to heart failure patient outcomes with an exclusive interest and passion to set the certain standards for heart failure nursing care. The researchers, health professionals and nurses that are interested on heart failure unite in this platform to share their ideas, and research findings and that will set the priority for the future focusing on patients in all environments including hospitals and care centres.
AAHFN has remained with its true mission and vision towards leading heart failure nurses and to be the primarily nursing association across the heart failure field. The members of this association serve the patients on monitoring, managing their symptoms with education and counselling. The scope of nurse’s practice mainly depends on their educational level, role, and state of practice, but they typically educate patients on the etiology of HF, medications used to manage and treat its symptoms, and lifestyle modifications. In some health care settings, registered nurses may also titrate medications, triage patient calls, or coordinate subspecialty referrals.
