The purpose of this home study course is to provide nurses with important information about the incidence of heart disease in women, its etiology and its risk factors. Because healthy lifestyle choices are vital to the prevention of heart disease, issues related to diet, exercise, weight control and smoking cessation are emphasized.

After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the role of heart disease as a cause of death for women
