Mission: Leading nurses in heart failure care.
Programs: The aahfn annual meeting is planned to meet the needs of nurses, advanced practice nurses, inpatient nurses, outpatient nurses, home health nurses, cardiac / hf administrators, clinical directors, physician assistants, dieticians and other healthcare providers, educators, and researchers interested in heart failure patient care. A variety of educational formats are planned that will encourage the exchange of new scientific and clinical information and support the interchange of opinions regarding care and management issues relevant to heart failure.
aahfn education covers our online education center, which is a repository of continuing educational activities, covering a wide array of heart failure related activities as well as educational publications including the heart failure nursing core curriculum.
aahfn is responsible for overseeing the certified heart failure nurse (chfn) program which certifies qualified nurses.
