Easy to comprehend. So worth it.

I'm not in nursing school till fall, but I wanted to get a head start on getting familiar with things. When I started the pre-course assessment, I got most or all questions wrong. On the AFTER-course assessment, I got 100%. Cathy makes it so easy to understand with (3 SIMPLE STEPS), and little memory tricks. My confidence has gone up. I 100% recommend. I grasped so much information regarding symptoms, what to administer, and causes. THIS IS YOUR GO-TO. The whole course is a bit lengthy but the clips are divided into sections which HELPS a lot, so you can take breaks in between the weeks which also helps you retain more info. The course gives you the option to print questions so you can do them ALONGSIDE Cathy, and take notes, STEP BY STEP. IT'S SOOO PERFECT. THANK YOU CATHY, PLEASE MAKE MORE TOPIC COURSES.

I was having trouble understanding but Let me just say SHE MAKES IT SOOOOOOOOO EASY TO UNDERSTAND. She even gives the option to download/print the practice questions to do it along with her. I 100% ♥️ love that. I was able to follow along and take notes. Definitely will be purchasing courses now. And I love ABGs now. But because she's is excellent at teaching. Again this is my first course but can't wait to try others.

This course was excellent! All the information was explained quickly and easily, and I have more confidence in interpreting ABGs. I also had bought the NCLEX bundle, which has been helping me tremendously in my nursing school courses. Thank you so much!
