  4. What is the difference between NP and DNP?

  9. Advanced 12-Lead EKG
    Check out Bob Page's program: Mulit Lead Medics. It's primarily targeted at pre-hospital providers, but it's full of great information and it's very well presented. I took it a few years ago and will...

    I called them last week about access to the website, they said that they're doing work on it and it will be up "in a week or so." Who knows what that actually means in real-time. My doctor called...
