    Can you renew PHTLS online?

    Update: I'm doing the hybrid modules now. Costs like $40. I had also purchased the digital version of the textbook - by accident. oops. Oh well. Still need to do a skills verification, but I can go to any of the local NAEMT affiliate training centers, apparently. That's handy. Just in case...

    Getting ready to start AEMT. (Give me your experience)

    I got my Advanced EMT before finishing Paramedic school and that was kind of how my program was laid out. Becoming an AEMT gave me something like a $2/hr raise at my agency at the time, which was cool, and I got to work with a Paramedic on some shifts. Other shifts, I was the primary provider...

    Can you renew PHTLS online?

    That is 100% why I'm renewing it. Pretty much every job posting I see around here requires PHTLS. Some will take PHTLS or ITLS, but they want one or the other. I had TCCC and TECC, but nope, recruiter said it has to be PHTLS. It's a 4 year recent, but naturally, mine expired in 20 flipping...

    lol, yeah, they may very well be keeping track because of how you have to handle the vials. Kaiser staff here told me that each vial is checked out to a specific RN and they're responsible for it, and it can only be out of the fridge for a few hours before they can't use it anymore. So they...

    Can you renew PHTLS online?

    Replying to myself. Looks like the website is referring to the hybrid program. You then have to find somewhere that's doing the hands-on skills checks. I am working on that currently. A lot of the places on their website are listing classes that took place in 2019 still.

    COVID VACCINE

    "Example...As a RN, I can fly to S. FL right now and work 12 hours a day 7 days a week (yes that is the schedule) giving vaccines and earn $77/hour plus Overtime. While this sounds great, why do you think they offer this much? This same stupid money exists in parts of CA as well. " Been trying...

    Can you renew PHTLS online?

    The NAEMT website is pretty vague and they haven't replied to my email yet asking for clarification. For both the "Refresher" and "Online PHTLS Module" it says "Upon successful completion of the module, students receive a certificate of completion and 8 hours of CAPCE credit." Do they allow...

    Coronavirus Discussion Thread

    even though it didn't really change a whole lot. The previous "shelter in place" order (in my opinion) was not only totally worthless but potential dangerous as well. I think it made things worse. It certainly did irrecoverable damage to the restaurant industry. LA County was sued and asked to...

    it can be for that too! if your heart desires. :D but I found that if I don't check it for a day, stuff scrolls off and it's lost forever.

    and this week has been interesting. Applied for a local private service that's supposedly really short staffed. Haven't heard back. That's always great for the self esteem. lol.

    this used to be the case but a lot of newer equipment shares the SSID for both 2.4ghz and 5ghz and does not separate them. best practice is for the client to pick. there's also stuff like channel width to deal with as well. we need lots more information though. :-)

    What things do you do to avoid boredom?

    I'm actually doing my national registry accepted CEs now instead of waiting until the end of March. :D

    Free CCP-C/FP-C class

    It seems like this class is already full according to their website but they may do another one. That's awesome though.

    Finally

    I had some crazy stuff happen in 2020 for sure. But there were a few very VERY good things.... * I finally was able to afford to get back into college, and I have been able to pay down a good chunk of credit card debt this year. * I successfully passed a required college math course. I know...

    This is very true! Some awesome places out there. The agency I had to leave when I moved back to California was a really fun place to work. I loved working there and looked forward to coming to work every day. You never know - you and another employee or two might click and together will help...
