I have been a Registered Nurse since 1994. I have worked in the Emergency Department since 2000 as a Staff Nurse, Department Director and Nursing Educator. I am certified as an Instructor for the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross.
I believe everyone should know CPR and how to use an AED - Automatic External Defibrillator; these are important skills to learn and the life you save will most likely be a loved one
