This course teaches CRNAs, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, and other allied health professionals the crucial skill of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) as an assessment tool. After completing our Sonosim-designed pre-learning modules and Maverick hands-on proficiency lab, you'll be able to make faster and more accurate diagnoses, improve outcomes, and send home happier and healthier patients.
Online Pre-learning Modules
Students must complete the online pre-learning modules before attending the proficiency lab. The modules are an interactive online learning system that allows students to complete course prerequisites at their own pace and preferred location. Users can access content from any computer, tablet, or other device with an Internet connection.
Over one or two days (depending on the course), students apply lessons from the online pre-learning modules to experiential training exercises in a clinical environment, developing confidence and proficiency in using the latest ultrasound equipment on live models to perform point-of-care diagnoses. The flipped classroom model ensures our students get the repetitions they need to attain true POCUS proficiency.
Once students feel confident in their proficiency of the material, they will test their knowledge with instructors. Upon successful completion of course requirements, each student earns a Certificate of Proficiency.
This course has been approved by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), American Medical Association (AMA), and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for 25 CE credits.
