Course Information:
You recently were or soon will be diagnosed with a new condition -- DOCTOR! The transition from NOT doctor to THE doctor is a scary one. You don't know it yet, but you already know a lot and are ready to do this.

You have the knowledge and many of the skills. Transforming that competence into confidence is the next big step in your journey. "Getting Thru the Night" Part I is the first of a series of 3 CE modules offered yearly FREE to New Graduates, thanks to the VIN Foundation. (The VIN Foundation: http://vinfoundation.com is committed to helping you (and all new graduates) feel supported as you journey into and through our profession. As part of this commitment to the new grad, the VIN Foundation is covering your enrollment fee.)

There will be minimal emphasis on pathophysiology and a strong emphasis on diagnostic testing, client management, time management and therapy for various common emergencies. Common mistakes will be highlighted so YOU don't make them and common pitfalls will be mentioned so YOU can avoid them. Many revelations will be made and many long-held beliefs will be shattered. This will be a whirlwind magical tour through the whimsical world of blood and guts ER stuff! Wear your running shoes! This is the opposite of the Ivory Tower.
