I finally found a NIGHT ACLS course

  1. I found this "savingamericanhearts.com" in Irving,TX on Irving Blvd
    They teach all the American Heart Association courses and they teach them all at night the website is pretty cool too !
    It's about time. I've been working nights for like 18 years ! I've always had to take off three days work to go to one all day long ACLS class. Finally ! Somebody loves the nightshifters !!

    I'm also a long time night shift RN. In fact, I recently did my MSN thesis / capstone about night shift nurses' adaptation to circadian disruption. I am in the process of regaining my lapsed BLS/ACLS/PALS instructor certs - specifically to provide stuff for my night shift colleagues.

    Thank you for posting this! I am moving to Dallas shortly to take a night shift job, and I have been worried about this. My employer provides ACLS in house, but I'm sure it is 8-5 and once I switch to night shift, mornings become pretty impossible! I would be willing to pay out of pocket for this class instead of trying to stay awake through a hospital class, but there is no pricing on this website. Do you happen to know what the cost is? Have you registered for a class? There doesn't seem to be a registration link either.

    Interesting thesis topic.
