Attached-(Uploaded to our existing documents) is a study guide and practice test similar to what you will take on Monday.

As a reminder, you are required to pass the exam prior to starting your assignment here. Please make sure to review anything you are not comfortable with prior to coming to UW Health. ***

****All agency travelers must demonstrate competency in interpretation of cardiac rhythms before your orientation begins. Previous completion of PALS, ACLS, etc. is not acceptable as a demonstration of this competency. Instead, you will be expected to satisfactorily complete a 20 question test which consists of multiple choice questions and write-in rhythm identification. You must pass with an overall score of 80% and correctly identify 100% of the 4 life-threatening rhythms for your patient population (adult or peds). If there are any questions, please refer to earlier communication from UWHC to your agency. ****
