dc.description.abstract The term Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) encompasses a spectrum of patients who present with chest discomfort or other symptoms caused by myocardial ischemia or infarction. Since critical or acute care nurses care for such patients, they should have a thorough knowledge of ACS pathophysiology and current treatments for ACS. <br><br> The purpose of this research study is to explore and describe the knowledge level that the critical care nurses in a state hospital in East Texas feel they have regarding ACS. This study was quantitative, descriptive and contextual in design, in which a sample survey was performed, using a questionnaire based on a literature study. <br><br> The response of most of the critical care nurses tested was that they felt they had insufficient knowledge. An in-service training session has been proposed to help improve the nurses' knowledge and expertise on ACS. en
