I’m Michael Jorden, MSN, RN. I am the manager of the Cardiac Stepdown Unit located on 7 North of Vanderbilt University Hospital.
To work in the Cardiac Stepdown unit, our nurses need to be able to provide patient education, have training in rhythm interpretation, and understand the relationship of multiple co-morbidities to care for our patient population.

Our unit specializes in caring for a patient population that includes heart failure, arrhythmia, transplant, and general cardiology patients.
By providing health coaching and education, our goal is to prevent readmissions of our former patients.
A typical shift for our nurses includes working in a fast-paced environment while consulting with cardiologists, rounding on heart failure cases, sending patients to cardiac rehab, and providing patient education pertaining to cardiac procedures and post-procedure care.
We pride ourselves on the journey we have taken to become the safest heart hospital in the nation.
