Harrah’s Las Vegas is the site of the Adult Critical Care Specialist Course.

In 2012, the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) released the Adult Critical Care Specialty Examination for Registered Respiratory Therapists who have at least one year of experience working in the adult critical care environment. This credential (RRT-ACCS) is unique to the daily tasks of an adult critical care specialist. It goes above and beyond general respiratory care activities and demonstrates an enhanced skill level in a fast-growing specialty within the field.

Until now, few preparatory options have been made available for RRTs seeking this credential. As such, the AARC is excited to host a 2-day, live prep course in Las Vegas, NV worth 13.55 CRCE.

A comprehensive understanding of the intensive care unit environment and the critically ill patient is vital to the respiratory therapist’s role as a part of the critical care team. Through this interactive program, participants will enhance their knowledge of the critical care environment and key factors, practices, and procedures that impact patient outcomes. Aligned with the test matrix of the NBRC, this program will better prepare participants to sit for and successfully pass the Adult Critical Care Specialty (ACCS) examination. In a tight economy where competition for open positions is fierce, this credential is a great way to differentiate yourself from your peers.

Not interested in sitting for the exam? Just want to brush up on your critical care skills? That’s OK too. This 2-day course is a great opportunity to build upon an existing skillset or to serve as an orientation to the critical care environment. Regardless of your reasoning on attending, the AARC’s RRT-ACCS prep-course has you covered.

So what do you say? Are you feeling lucky? Take a roll of the dice and sign up today for the premier prep course of the year.
