ACLS and PALS classes

  1. 0 I am new to the PACU I have been a nurse for one year med-surg at the hospital and realized I HATED it. I recently got a job at an outpatient surgery center and would like to know where do you all get your PALS, ACLS certifications from?? Do you take the classes at a local hospital or where? I have ACLS that expires this year and need to renew, looking for classes and then I will ask if my work will cover some of the expense. Thanks!

    I worked at an ambulatory surgery center, we went to a local hospital for ACLS/PALS paid for by the center. CPR was done as a group at the center. Since it is a requirement for employment, certification and recerts were at employers expense.

    I moved, and just last night put ACLS classes and the name of the city in google and found schools near my address. Very easy.

    Not sure where you live in TX but I just completed ACLS on Saturday and this was the best ACLS class I have ever attended! Being new to this forum, I am not sure what info I can give here but feel free to DM me and I will share!

    Our hospital has instructors for both ACLS and PALS, with 4 sessions of each throughout the year. So, there is no excuse for our cards to expire.
