The Canadian Chapter Society for Vascular Nursing was formed in 2000 to meet the needs of the Canadian Vascular Nurse. CCSVN was under the umbrella of The Society for Vascular Nursing an international organization dedicated to professionalism and excellence in practice. CCSVN was incorporated in 2004.
In 2010, the membership voted on changing the name to: The Canadian Society of Vascular Nursing (CSVN) . This makes us the only Canadian Society dedicated to vascular nursing in Canada. Although we still have strong ties to the Society for Vascular Nursing, we are a separate Society with Chapters of our own.
CSVN holds an annual conference at the same time as the Canadian Society of Vascular Surgeons (CSVS),
