What are patient experience following cardiac surgery and the nursing care in the post operative period.
Cardiothoracic surgical ward. I chose the topic on patient experiences following cardiac surgery and nursing care in the post operative period.

Hence this information will be helpful for the new nurses or student nurse. I had a meeting with my tutor. She adviced me to put justificaion for choosing this topic.
