Knowledge is the Key Requirement
We do not recommend this exam for technicians or nurses. It was developed for Cardiologist reading on Hospital ECG panels. Some Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistant take the exam because they are reading a large number of complicated ECGs in their daily practice or because they wish to read on their Hospital ECG Panel. Success depends on how well one has applied themselves to studying advanced concepts in arrhythmias and advanced 12-lead ECG diagnoses.
