Meet the demand for cross-trained health professionals by adding EKG Technician skills to your current résumé.
Healthcare facilities look for health professionals with EKG tech background to assist in the detection and/or confirmation of problems with the heart that might prove to be fatal if not detected.
EKG (Electrocardiogram) Technicians perform ECG tests that record and monitor electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. An electrocardiograph (EKG) technician administers diagnostic cardiac tests to patients pre-surgery or to patients who may have cardiac problems; the tests help detect, and monitor medical conditions such as heart disease, arrhythmias, pericarditis and angina.
Elite Medical Academy offers the EKG Technician test prep training course to prepare healthcare workers to take the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Certified EKG Technician Exam. This course addresses EKG-related medical terminology, cardiac anatomy & physiology, rhythm, and basic interpretation.
Back in 2006 I was working in a dead in job that I hated. I had heard about my friend who just completed their training to become a Certified Nursing Assistant and really loved her new job. I decided to check it out and see what the career offers. After looking through the job opportunities I decided to become a CNA, but my ultimate goal was to become a Nurse.
On December 2nd 2006 I signed up at a local CNA Academy. It cost me $350 of my hard-earned dollars from my dead in job. I had hoped I wasn't making the wrong decision but was all in now. I enjoyed the training, I could tell this would be a rewarding job but truly I was lost. How do I sign up for the state exam? Where do I get my background check? After hours of researching and submitting my application twice I was finally for approved to take the state exam in Florida. I had two weeks to cram as much studying and practicing as I could. Nervously in February I took the state exam and passed on my first attempt!
Finally, I was a licensed Certified Nursing Assistant, the start of my long and rewarding career in healthcare. My first Job as a CNA was a skilled nursing facility generally caring for about 10 patients a shift. I loved it, it was a job I could be proud of. With so many options in Healthcare I was able to continue to move up the career ladder. I became a Patient Care Technician and worked in major hospitals in various units like the ICU and CVICU, while I pursued my nursing license.
Subsequently in 2016 I became a nurse and decided to open an affordable comprehensive online CNA program. I created the program to answer all the questions I had when I was starting out and ensure students could become CNA'S quickly and most importantly not break the bank. Our online CNA program is available 100% online, with 24/7 nursing support to get your career started right.
