    Advertisements



    I have to get ACLS recertified to start clinicals. Do you think the school will accept online recertification? Thanks in advance

    As long as the course is AHA acls, then you're fine. But i dont think you can do acls recertification online entirely. You have to demonstrate the "skills/megacode, etc" portion in front of an instructor. You can take the written test online. Call a hospital you're close by to. You can also try any community college that has nursing/paramedic courses as well. I got mine done over my break from med3-med 4 at a cc.

    well I should be certified through the course I took on the island... but I have no proof of it. I have no idea how on who I should call to get this proof... The school sent it to Miami for 5th semester but Im pretty sure they threw it out once I was done with the semester... Anyone who started clinicals care to share how they went about getting this proof. If I have to call the island, then FORGET IT.. thats just going to be a huge headache

    Yes. It's also the same for BLS. But it must be BLS for healthcare providers from AHA. It's almost the same as a refund..you're just not "charged" the extra money for ACLS or BLS.

    I'm not sure about calling, etc. If you take a course at a 'regular' community college, hospital, etc you get your ACLS card that day. If memory serves me, the "initial" class is only 60 bucks or so..and it's not like at AUA. It's only about 6 hours the first day..and probably 2 hours the second day, so it might just be worthwhile to just take the initial class again. For most recert classes, you have to bring your card to show the instructor. If it's expired, they make you take the initial class again. Does the AUA clinical coordinator/5th semester coordinator not keep records of these things? They should have a copy of your card on file somewhere. Maybe you could get it faxed/mailed to you. Just a thought..
