    I am renewing my acls in several weeks. I am also renewing my subscrition on this site . In 2013 with the help of this site I was prepared and well versed. From past experience I always struggled with the written test.
    I got above 80 and was overjoyed I didn’t have to receive remedial assist and retake test for the first time ever. I understood material and could assess the scenarios well in mega codes. I went on to retain most knowledge in the OR as we have minimal codes but when we need it we have to make recall immediately. I actually corrected an anesthesia provider on a defib action.
    So thanks!!

    Hi. I have been a nurse for 10 years in the behavior health. I am now working in the behavior health part of the ED. We must have acls and pals. I haven’t looked at a EKG stripe in 10 years, nor do I know the medications. Would this site help or would you recommend buying one of the in debt books?

    Thank you
