Frequently asked questions for  PALS: 

  • Is PALS open book? 

    • For the skills testing you may use material but the written exam is not open book​

  • Is PALS harder than ACLS?

    • In my opinion yes. Here is why: Pediatrics is a population most providers are not used to​, so it brings a set of anxiety because of unfamiliarity. Also, because pediatrics have a range of body weight, they have a range of vital signs, drugs and electrotherapy. That takes extra work to memorize and apply. So, because we are not used to pediatrics and the treatment contains more information, I conclude PALS is harder than ACLS. 

  • Is PALS and NRP the same? 

    • They are not. PALS covers a wide range of pediatrics while NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program) focuses solely on newborns. ​

  • Does PALS include BLS?

    • It does not. PALS adds onto BLS. Students are required to already obtain a BLS card (and knowledge) prior to the class. ​

  • Does PALS cover neonates?

    • Yes and No. PALS protocols will manage treatment of a newborn, but a PALS class does not substitute a NRP class.

  • Does PALS count as CEUs?

Refund Policy:  If you are unable to attend your registered class, a 24-hour written notice (emailed to albcprman@yahoo.com) is required for BLS, HSFA, HS AED and First Aid Classes.  For ACLS and PALS, a 7-day written notice is required (emailed to albcprman@yahoo.com) and a $25 fee may apply.  Refunds/rescheduling will not be given if you register for the wrong class or do not show up for class.  If you are not sure which class you need, please call 505-573-7156.
