Description

ACLS classes and actual real-life codes are often a HUGE source of anxiety for healthcare providers.  

Not to mention, the AHA guidelines have just been updated.  We all know what that means…new standards and classes are coming!   

I will share from my many years as an emergency, critical care, flight and trauma nurse, to lead the way to new guidelines, new strategies and new thinking.  Get ready to make ACLS FUN, get your megacode mojo on, and totally...ROCK THE RESUS!  This course will absolutely prepare you to CRUSH your mandatory certification classes!  

But even more important than tackling your next ACLS Exam, are you ready for your next real-life code? After all, when a patient’s life is literally on the line, there cannot be any delays or second guessing.  We need to proceed with confidence and solid understanding of the latest standards to guide our practice decisions. 

When you reflect back on code’s you have been involved in, do you wonder if you did all the right things?  We all do....   I am going to teach you how to master Psychological Safety, Just Culture and Human Factors to deep learn pathophysiology, how to translate that next level knowledge into clinical practice and how to function as part of a high performance team.  Don’t wait another minute….to Master The MegaCode!
