EVERY nurse should take an EMT-B class. This isn't WHERE i learned good cpr, but it was EMPHASIZED over and over and over. I just thought it was second nature to lock your arms out and use your bodyweight to compress...
more and more i hear stories of nurses who don't know how to do cpr. pretty pretty pretty sad.
I don't get it. We all go through the same CPR classes with the same guidelines... and no one can say "They don't do it enough" because this is the first time in 2 years I've ever done it!
Granted I also have ACLS and PALS, but honestly those certs don't make you better at pushing on a chest.
Anyhow, little advice to people. If you are involved in an MVC and run, don't tell the police the car was stolen 5 minutes before the accident, and not make a police report of a stolen vehicle...and not change your clothes...
