Nurse Practitioner Earns Heart Failure Care CertificationPublished 10/10/2011

Missy Jensen, nurse practitioner, with the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado at North Colorado Medical Center and McKee Medical Center, has been named a Certified Heart Failure nurse by the American Association of Heart Failure Nurses.

Jensen’s designation as a Certified Heart Failure Nurse establishes she is knowledgeable and well qualified to provide specialized care to the patients she serves through the CardioVascular Institute. According to the American Association of Heart Failure Nurses, patients have better outcomes when care is provided by certified nurses. 

“Missy’s passion for achieving this certification was to enhance the care that she gives heart failure patients in our community,” said Dawn Olson, director of business development for CVI. “She continues to represent our heart failure clinic and NCMC with a high degree of professionalism and integrity. Missy is considered an expert in the heart failure field. CVI is fortunate to have such a strong advocate for our heart failure population. ”

Jensen is one of three nurses in the state of Colorado to obtain this designation.
