We use Patient Simulation to develop Interdisciplinary Resuscitation Team Skills during all PALS courses held at Nationwide Children's. The Pediatric Advanced LIfe Support (PALS) Course is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
Registration is available for the following courses:
ACLS Provider Course (NCH Employees)
ACLS Renewal Course (NCH Employees)

Classroom PALS: 100% classroom training means students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience. PALS is a classroom, video-based, Instructor-led course that uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
Blended Learning Option: AHA Blended Learning courses combine the flexibility of online training with in person skills practice and testing. Successful completion of the full PALS course (using HeartCode PALS Part 1) includes three parts:
