One of the responsibilities of clinical educators is to identify learning needs of staff and to develop education programs to meet those needs. A new outpatient diagnostic cardiac catheterization program required patients to be transferred postprocedure to the short procedure unit until discharge. The author describes the development, the implementation, and the evaluation of an education program on postcardiac catheterization care for ambulatory care nurses as well as initiation of a new care program postcardiac catheterization.
