The Associate in Science in Cardiovascular Technology prepares students for careers as cardiovascular technologists who assist physicians during angioplasty and stenting, monitor a patient’s hemodynamic status during procedures, and provide professional and compassionate pre- and post-procedural patient care. Graduates find employment opportunities in cardiac catheterization labs in hospitals and freestanding clinics as professionally licensed healthcare associates.

Polk State Cardiovascular Technology boasts a 100% job-placement rate (2020-2022), as well as a 90% credentialing exam pass rate on first attempts (2020-2022), illustrating the highly sought, limited-access program’s success in preparing cardiovascular technologists for success in the rewarding and growing field. The need for cardiovascular technologists and technicians is predicted to grow 10% (2022-2032), faster than the average growth of other occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
