National Cardiovascular Nursing Societies Award

The national cardiovascular nursing societies play a crucial role in supporting best evidence-based practice, so don't miss the opportunity to apply for the National Cardiovascular Nursing Societies Award to give more visibility to the important work you are doing in your country, and present this at ACNAP 2024 congress!

Apply before 30 March 2024.


The ACNAP National Cardiovascular Nursing Societies (NS) Committee, in collaboration with the Chairs and representatives of the ACNAP National CV Nursing Societies network, conducted an important survey in 2022 for nurses and allied professionals on the use and implementation of the ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines and ACNAP publications in clinical practice. The survey was also translated into 12 languages.


A total of 546 nurses and allied professionals responded to the survey. The results showed a certain lack of knowledge and low level of implementation for some of the ESC Guidelines and ACNAP documents.

Hence, the ACNAP NS Committee decided to create an Award for the national cardiovascular nursing society judged as the most successful in implementing the ESC Guidelines and ACNAP documents in its country, to support clinical practice and scientific knowledge.

Who can participate?

This award is open to all nurses and allied professionals who are ACNAP Associates or ACNAP Silver Members and officially part of a National Cardiovascular Nursing Society in their own country.
