I have had a job that requires ACLS. I've taken it so many times that it's almost a merit badge course to me. It's a good cert to have, but unless you're going for a job that requires it, I'd hold off. Now when I'm done with school, I'll be renewing my ALS certs because I'll be going back to that previous job that requires it and I'll be going for nursing jobs
that might require the certifications. That's my take on things. Only you truly know your situation and what kinds of nursing jobs you'll be going for. It very well absolutely could be something that makes sense for you to get your ACLS cert now.
Having ACLS certification most likely won't be something that hinders you... If you have the money to take the course, at worst, you'll be out about $250, at best it'll be something that helps you get a job. Of course, you
will be the what they base their decision on, but the cert might make the decision to hire you easier. Another thing to remember is that sometimes employers will pay for you to take the course if your job requires it and the hire you into that position without the cert. This will probably become less and less common for quite a while... until nursing experiences another shortage and they have to hire many new nurses to fill vacancies.
