In collaboration with Matt Lambert, RN and flight nurse, The Elite Nurse Practitioner is proud to announce the addition of another course into our “Clinical Focused” course line: The Foundational ECG/EKG Interpretation Course, the Elite Nurse Practitioner guide on how to interpret and analyze an ECG in the outpatient setting. This course is designed for the nurse practitioner who is needing a solid review on how to read and interpret an ECG or for the nurse practitioner who doesn’t have much experience doing it so they can expand their clinical knowledge. PLUS, you will earn 5 CEU hours to go towards your certification and licensure!
Having the ability to interpret and analyze an ECG is an absolutely critical skill every nurse practitioner should have. In my opinion, it falls right into understanding how to interpret vital signs. It is foundational knowledge the astute nurse practitioner should have within their knowledge base as it will make you a more well-rounded provider!
It doesn’t matter what type of practice you operate; this is a pivotal skill to have. Sure, you might not be ordering ECGs very often in your niche practice, but you will be glad to understand how to do it when the time comes. In terms of the niche services, having the ability to read an ECG is important for weight loss. It is debatable how necessary an ECG is before prescribing phentermine, but if risk factors are present, then an ECG should be performed. Additionally, being able to read an ECG effectively for services such as primary care and urgent care is a very important skill to have!
This course was done in collaboration with a colleague of mine that I have known for over a decade. He has been an RN in the emergency department for well over 10 years and has been a flight nurse for the past 4-5 years. This guy has seen it all and reads ECGs on a daily basis. He has put forth his knowledge and experience in this course to teach the nurse practitioner on how to read and interpret an ECG effectively!
This course will teach the astute nurse practitioner the foundational knowledge to read and interpret and ECG. We will cover everything from the foundations and structure of an ECG to how to identify over 2 dozen different rhythms to even some practice integration considerations. You should walk away from this course with more foundational knowledge that will make you a more powerful and knowledgeable nurse practitioner!
