Hey All-

I was wondering what are some of the certifications you all hold as established nurses? Please if you put an acronym can you expand on it and tell me which area you work in?

Thanks so much!

Currently, just ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support. IE How to run a code).

There is some rumor they are going to make us get PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) but I don't see why they would do that. I work on a cardiac/neuro IMCU (adults only).

TNS - trauma nurse specialist - actually an IL license

Then, educationally, I have an MSN, adult health CNS and pediatric CNS.
