What others are saying about ENLS

ENLS was tough and useful. It is an amazing compilation of important and succinct information, with practical implications. Many primary specialty textbooks do not contain the information provided by ENLS, especially up-to-date details that guide fast-paced management decisions from the first encounter with the neurological or neurosurgical patient in the ED to his/her long-term NICU stay. Despite the fact that I am a mid-career neurointensivist with years of experience, I found few module questions quite challenging. I have definitely learned something new.”
~ Panayiotis Varelas, MD, Henry Ford Hospital
 
The ENLS course is a great nursing tool. The course covers all the important aspects of early care and treatment for neuro patients; and the opportunity to complete the course online - at my own pace - is a perfect fit for busy neurocritical care nurses who want to advance their knowledge and skill.” 
~ Dai Wai M. Olson, PhD, RN, University of Texas Southwestern
