Welcome

We are the Congenital Cardiac Nurses Association (CCNA), the only UK association dedicated to representing the voice of children’s cardiac nurses throughout the UK and Southern Ireland.

The CCNA has members spanning the whole of the UK and Ireland, as well as a few from around the globe. These are predominantly children’s nurses, but recently membership has expanded to include others working in the specialty, such as adult nurses working in the adult congenital heart disease centres.

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our annual conference this year, our apologies go out to those who were planning to attend. The next CCNA day will be alongside BCCA in November, see events page for details.

 

Our aims:

• To act as a discussion forum for health care practitioners engaged or interested in congenital, acquired or inherited cardiothoracic practice

• To facilitate communication inter-professionally as well as between children’s cardiac centres, nationally and internationally

• To act as a body representing the voice of children’s cardiac nurses throughout the UK and Southern Ireland

• To act as a body representing the voice of congenital cardiac nurses throughout the UK and Southern Ireland

• To promote and share ideas relating to clinical practice, research and education

• To promote the welfare of the child, young person and their family within the sphere of children’s cardiac nursing
