Hi, I have been out of nursing for 4 yrs and am now back working since my dh was laid off. The hospital I work for is requires all nurses to be ACLS certified. I have been a med/surg RN for 16 yrs, a nurse 20 yrs but I'm totally freaking out over this!! I have heard it's not a fun thing to go through. Any advice?
Also, I heard the new guidelines were updated in 2006, is this true? I can't seem to find the current book that I will need. Everything is 2005 guidelines. I compare notes from various books and online materials and it's all different.
I also heard my employer isn't paying for the course. I really hope that isn't true. It's over 200!
Thanks for any help. I'm happy to have found this forum!
