It was a great way to get my certification after a lapse for many years! I feel I was given more information than had I just gone to class, plus more time to absorb it. Thank you so much!

I am a Pedia nurse and I took this course to check how far my knowledge is from saving my patients and I was amazed how great the course is. The content is brief but everything is tackled and it was explained very clearly. I did the right decision for enrolling in this course and more grateful for the fact that it is given for free.
