ACUTE CARDIAC CARE COURSE - Conducted by: Health Ed Professionals P/Ltd.
Enrolments are now open, class size limited.
COURSE DELIVERY DATES:
These courses have previously been held twice annually on the Gold Coast, and annually at Caboolture to coincide with the winter and summer semester university breaks. Many of enrolments are from undergraduate nursing students, as well as registered nurses and paramedics who want to do the courses for professional development or towards their post-graduate studies.
Restructuring of our business model, and changes to the university course provider on the Sunshine Coast has meant that we no longer offer the course at Caboolture, and the Gold Coast course will be offered by Health Ed Professionals P/Ltd. OSCA Health Education will not be associated with this course from April 2018 onwards.
Course Dates: COURSE TIMES: 9.00 am to 4.30 pm daily.

Evaluation comments from past students:
This course has received positive feedback from previous students for many years.
"I just loved this course. I think it should be a mandatory course at the university".
"I learnt so much, I am so excited that I am an undergraduate and I can read 12 lead ECGs and life threatening arrhythmias".
"Anne is just so passionate about the lectures, we all had such fun".
"Wish all my subjects were over a week like this, I now have less work to do next year as I used this course as an elective for my university course".
"Thanks Anne, the course was fantastic".
"I am a Registered Nurse in the Coronary Care Unit, I have learnt so much about ECGs, cardiac disorders and rhythms. I feel so much more confident at work. I also found doing the course over one week suited me better rather than over a long semester".
