PALS - AHA Pediatric Advanced Life Support

Cost: $250

The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) class from the American Red Cross is the scientifically equivalent and educationally superior choice. Not only does it include the latest science-based curriculum, but with options that allow you to streamline your training and improve skill retention, it can help you better serve your smallest patients.

Our innovative Blended Learning program. By combining online coursework with an in-person skills session, they allow you to learn at your own pace – and in the place, and on the device, you like best. Throughout the course, our interactive scenarios will help you understand the often-nuanced facets of pediatric care and will help improve your clinical decision-making skills. After completing the online portion of course, and passing the final written exam, you’ll attend an in-person skills session where you’ll demonstrate your PALS skills. Once you’ve passed both sections of the course, you’ll receive a two-year Pediatric Advanced Life Support certification.

Once enrolled in the course through Gritman’s HealthStream Learning Center, students can access the self-paced course anytime from any computer. Once a student has finished the online HealthStream portion of the course, which may take ten hours for ACLS, they must schedule a time with Gritman’s Education Department to complete a hands-on skills check off on voice assisted computerized manikins. Skills check off for ACLS takes less than 30 minutes. Checkoffs are scheduled individually during normal business hours.
