  • We want to inform you about the Clinical Cardiology Review Course and Board Certification Opportunity scheduled at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center in National Harbor, MD, September 26-30, 2014. This Course was designed specifically for your continued Professional Development and/or Certification needs. You will not want to miss this Exceptional opportunity. Mark your calendar, and make your reservations today to take advantage of the early bird prices. We guarantee you, hands down, this is one of the Best Clinical Cardiology Courses in existence, and we offer the only Certification in Cardiology available to Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants.

  • Four Reasons Why You Will Want to Attend this Clinical Cardiology Board Review Course?

  • First of all, our History of Providing Cardiovascular Professionals, from Physician, to Technicians with Evidence Based Practice Standards of Education, and Certification Opportunities since 1969, is ”Second to None!”Our Late Co-Founder, Henry J. L. Marriott, MD, FACC worked alongside Jonni Cooper in the Development of Standards of Practice and Education for 4 levels of Electrocardiography from basic to advanced, and 4 levels of Practice for Clinical Nurses and Nurse Practitioners. They then followed up by Developing Certification Examinations for all 8 levels of Practice in Cardiology with the assistance of over two dozen Experts in various Subspecialties within Cardiology. Dr. Marriott never accepted mediocrity from his staff, students, or co-workers, and they managed to live up to his standard with great pride. Ms. Cooper the Organization’s Founder, assured Dr. Marriott that we would not waiver from his high standard and made a promise that we would continue to carry on a high standard of practice and education, and continue to strive for Excellence in Education for all Cardiovascular Care Givers through our “House of Cardiology,” a term dubbed by Dr. Marriott Himself.

  • Second, you will interact and Network with Fellow Cardiac Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistantson a National Level, and you will be led by, and interact with a well informed and Dynamic Course Director and Faculty:David Friedman, MD, FACC, FACP, Attending Cardiologist, Nassau Cardiology of North Shore-LIJ Health System, Chief, Heart Failure Services at North Shore-LIJ Franklin Hospital, Assistant Professor of Cardiology Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine; Candice Harvey Falls, PhDc, MSN, ACNP-BC, CVNP-BC, Acute Care Nurse Practitioner at the University of Kentucky Hospital, Lexington, KY; and Alice Friedrich, MS, ANP, CVRN-BC, a Cardiovascular Nurse Practitioner for the North Shore-LIJ Health System in Woodbury, NY. 

  • Third, this Clinical Cardiology Course was designed specifically for your Professional Development and Provides an Excellent Comprehensive Up-Date in Clinical Evaluation, Diagnosis, and Management for a host of Cardiac Diseases and Anomalies (note the Course Review Topics below). And you will also have the opportunity to validate your Skills and Knowledge in Clinical Cardiology by passing your CVNP-BC or CVPA-BC Board Certification Examination.

  • And, fourth, if you attend the Course and persuade a Colleague to also attend, you will be given a complimentary ACCNP Membership that you may use when registering for this Course. Join online at under Membership Opportunities at the bottom left panel of our home page.
