Background: Cardiovascular disease remain occurs around of the world. Currently, as many as 30% of deaths worldwide are caused by cardiovascular disease. Not only have an impact on death, some patients with cardiovascular disease also experience readmission. Self-management by activating patients can decrease the readmission. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to apply Patient Activation Measure to assess the activation of patients with cardiovascular disease. Methods: This study was the application of evidence-based nursing practice. Patient Activation Measure consists of 13 statement items representing 4 levels of patient activation. Patient Activation Measure were used in Gedung Perawatan II, included of 51 sampel patient with cardiovascular disease. Results: Patient Activation Measure was sent to 51 patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and heart failure patient (N=36) and post cardiac surgery (N=15), included 29 male and 22 female. The Patient activation Measure demonstrated adequate internal consistency overall (Cronbach’s α = 0.828) and inter-item correlation range from 0.341 to 0.556. The average value of the patient's answer higher at level 1 than answer at level 2, 3, and 4. Conclusions: Patient Activation Measure able to used for patient with cardiovascular disease, has good reliability and validity. By approached to previous research, the activation level of patient in National Heart Center Harapan Kita Jakarta at level 3 or medium activation
