Overview

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), more than 795,000 Americans experience a stroke each year. First-time strokes account for over three-quarters of them. An acute stroke, whether ischemic or hemorrhagic, is a clinical emergency that requires urgent intervention. Immediate priorities include timely recognition of stroke symptoms and expedient activation of systems of care. Bedside nurses play a primary role in activating these systems and providing coordinated stroke care throughout hospitalization.
