    Anyone can take the class but whether or not you will use the skills is a different story. Most of the IV Push medications and assessment skills are out of the scope of practice of LPN's in most states. Most ACLS students are more successful with a relevant clinical background (ER, ICU, CCU, etc.) so they are familiar with the ECG rhythms, terminology, and drug protocols from exposure and use.

    Anyone can take it. As an LPN you will probably never use it. However, will look great on your résumé!
