    Our ER requires BLS, ACLS, and PALS. Trauma is optional since we have a level 1 trauma center up the road (affiliated hospital). National cert is also optional.

    We are required to have ACLS & PALS within 6 months of hire for ER, ICU and PACU staff. We are a small, rural hospital pretty far from everything. Obtaining any of these can be a bit problematic because there is no access to the classes elsewhere. Our hospital provides them 3 - 4 times a year.

    Definately. We are also required to have PALS, TNCC, and of course BCLS.

    I finished BCLS PALS and ACLS prior to appling to the ER and got the job over those who had not taken the ACLS yet.
