This class is an opportunity for you and a family member or friend to take part in a small-group session lead by inpatient cardiac surgery nurses who can answer your questions such as:

  • How do I prepare for surgery?
  • Where do I go when I arrive at the hospital?
  • What happens after my surgery?
  • Who takes care of me during my hospital stay?
  • When can I go home after surgery?

A tour of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) is offered after the class for those who are interested.
