Ekg certification is different than ACLS. ACLS is a course to famliarize you with what to do in an emergency and cardiac asrrest. There are EKG rhythms withon the course but there is much more with 12 lead interpretation. I'm not sure how much EKG class will help you in finding a job unless you are looking at critical care areas. Jobs are tight right now and have been for a while. I am so dissappointed in nursing school not preparing their graduates for the reality of the job market....shame on them. If you cruise the site you will see there are many without jobs and many new grads that have been looking for, at times, longer than a year.
I wish you luck on your job quest....:heartbeat
