Live Virtual Classes

What are the differences between Live classes, Live Virtual Classes and On Demand? What is right for me??

The "classes near you" are on location classes in a brick and mortar classroom. You get a printed workbook and up to 120 days access to a recording of the information. As with all of our classes you get a live coach  to help you whenever you need it. Just call or email.

 

A couple times a month we bring a camera with us and sit it at one of the desks. The "Live virtual classes" are a live video stream usually from one of our brick and mortar classes. There will be a chat box for you to ask questions just like anyone else in class. The printed workbook is shipped to your home so you’ll have the same materials as those in the classroom too. You get a total of 120 days access to the recorded information and as always the live coach as you prepare.

 

The On Demand class (coming soon for CAPA-CPAN, CRCST, and CST courses)  are a series of recorded videos with an online practice test after each session. Because it’s a 100% online environment you can begin immediately. It’s the exact same information as what we present live but there’s nothing printed and you have 60 days to access AND complete the course to receive your certificate. You will receive access to download and print your own notes pages, be aware It is a large file (approx 113 pages). 

Important - you must complete the course and evaluation within the 60 day period to receive your certificate and CEU's

You have to take the course in order the first time through but then, once you do that, you can go back and review wherever you like (basically you can go back but you can't skip ahead). Because there’s no recordings to maintain or materials to print and ship we can charge less.  Of course you still have access to a live coach  if you have any questions.

Why you should take this course to prepare for the CAPA-CPAN Exam?

Because this is the most thorough review of perianesthesia nursing available. This is a straight forward approach to the specific information you will need to successfully complete the CAPA or CPAN exam. This course is based on ASPAN Standards and has been approved by AORN for 16.0 continuing education hours.

Two days of information is presented in a relaxed, professional atmosphere, delivered with humor and real life events that help you to relate the Recommended Practices to your own perianesthesia nursing practice. You will retain the information for the exam and for years to come.

Experience Shows!

This course was developed to help perianesthesia nurses just like you become certified. The course was created while our educator was the PACU educator for a large teaching hospital. A busy level I trauma center with a thriving heart program and children’s hospital provided an abundance of real world experience. Born from the reality of a busy surgical department, this CAPA / CPAN prep course has developed and strengthened into one of the most comprehensive study programs available.
