Tip of the Week – Alternative Continuing Education Opportunities

In this week’s tip of the week, I bring you a segment with advance practice nurse Kelly Arashin. She’s an acute care nurse practitioner, nurse educator and critical care nurse who I interviewed at a recent EMS conference, EMS Today. Kelly chats with me and EMS Garage Podcast host Chris Montera about the quality and breadth of the coned sessions and opportunities she saw at this conference for EMTs and paramedics. Here’s that segment from EMS Today this past March in Washington, DC.
