This course provides the critical care nurse with a review of AACN's core curriculum.  The agenda combines central knowledge-based lectures for nurses working the ICU but a comprehensive update for the professional at the bedside and preparing for the certification examination.

This course is designed to provide nurses with the tools, confidence and knowledge to successfully complete the Medical-Surgical Nursing Exam.  The exam content outlines and blueprints from the ANCC and MSNCB were used to develop this program.  Topics covered from the exam content outlines include:  review of body systems, cardiac, pulmonary, neurologic, gastrointestinal, renal, genitourinary, reproductive, endocrine, hematologic, musculoskeletal, immune and more.  Pathophysiology of disease processes including signs and symptoms and treatment modalities will be presented.  The nursing process and nursing practice roles in the management of patient care will be discussed through case scenarios and sample questions.  All aspects of the practice domains and test-taking strategies will also be covered.

This trauma certification review course is designed and developed to prepare nurses specializing in trauma care to take the TCRN Examination.  This review course provides topics featured on the examination such as neurotrauma, chest, abdominal, extremity and wound, injury prevention and professional issues in trauma nursing.  It also provides hints throughout the course on test-taking skills.

CNRN Exam Review
The CNRN Exam Review Course is designed to provide the neuroscience nurse with a review of the topics presented in the CNRN Examination.  The course outline is based upon the blueprint of the CNRN Examination provided by ABNN. 

CNOR Exam Review
This course is designed for nurses working in the perioperative setting who plan to take the CNOR Certification Exam. The course will focus on core concepts defined by AORN® while caring for all populations.

ECG Interpretation: Rhythms & 12-Leads
Healthcare providers caring for patients who require cardiac monitoring must have an in-depth knowledge of electrocardiography in order to accurately and rapidly assess rhythm strips and 12-leads.  Early identification is crucial to the early recognition of potentially life-threatening abnormalities.  This course examines both ECG rhythms and 12-leads.  The arrhythmia modules will discuss the fundamental knowledge necessary to accurately identify disturbances in cardiac rhythms and are recommended before viewing the 12-lead modules.  The 12-lead modules present common abnormalities found in the 12-lead ECG and challenge learners with numerous examples to test their skills.  This course is designed for the new nurse as well as the experienced nurse who desires to improve his or her interpretive skills.

Everything Cardiac
This program provides a clinically applicable review of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, cardiac assessment, cardiovascular pharmacology and interventions based on current guidelines for the most common cardiac disorders seen in clinical practice. Content includes a review of cardiac physiology that can be applied in daily practice, the physiological basis for cardiovascular drug therapy and the pathophysiology, diagnosis and guideline-based treatment strategies for heart failure, acute coronary syndromes and atrial fibrillation. Clinically useful tips on noninvasive assessment techniques and 12-Lead ECG interpretation can be applied in any clinical setting where cardiac patients receive care. Evidence-based practice standards for bedside cardiac monitoring for arrhythmia identification, ST-segment monitoring and QT interval monitoring provide a foundation for the delivery of high quality patient care in any monitored setting. Take your knowledge of cardiovascular patient care to a higher level and improve outcomes for your patients.

Conquering Lab Interpretation
No matter what your area of expertise, no field in medicine spends enough time training you for lab interpretation. Join us as we conquer the interpretation of lab findings to help you gain the clues you need to provide better care to your patients. What we understand, we can then use to set up the plan of the day, to progress the patient towards good outcomes and to predict the next step in the treatment goal. Data collection and understanding are important steps in the development of critical thinking. Hone critical thinking skills through humor and detailed case studies.
