PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
Registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, paramedics, and other health care providers must diagnose and manage critical ECGs and arrhythmias in various practice settings. This program is designed to facilitate health care providers in obtaining or refreshing these practical skills. Deliberate practice, use of an audience response system, interactive discussions and faculty feedback, will enhance the learning experience.
