AACN’s course supports educators by providing nurses with consistent and efficient ECG training, necessary for patient care. The modular design lets you tailor assignments to your nurses' and unit's needs. Triggers in the course encourage familiarity with your unit’s equipment and practices.
Nurses increase their knowledge and develop skills through application exercises and case scenarios featuring:
Interactive content on physiology and lead placement that teaches the how and why of proper ECG monitoring and analysis
An 8-step process for analyzing and interpreting cardiac rhythms to maximize consistency and accuracy, and a 5-step process for analyzing pacemaker rhythms
A systematic approach to identifying ischemia and infarction on a 12-lead ECG
Extensive application and assessment of rhythm-strip identification to build skills and demonstrate subject matter proficiency. Includes actual strips (six-second strips of all rhythms) and 12-lead ECGs.
