New RNs orienting to the CCU are typically given 16 weeks of orientation working directly with preceptors and attending didactic lectures. 

Some of the medical therapies exclusive to the CCU are Intra-Aortic Balloon pump and the Impella short-term ventricular assist device.  The unit frequently admits patients with Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheters, arterial lines, and ventilators.

A strong emphasis is placed on recruiting RNs who possess good critical thinking and communication skills, a desire for autonomy, and enthusiasm for continuous learning and honing of skills and knowledge.  The leadership structure of the CCU supports a clinical manager or charge nurse on every shift, a unit-based educator, and a director who oversees the CCU and other clinical areas.  Specialty certification is encouraged and supported.
