ASC Testimonial

When I first entered the stroke world five years ago, I was introduced to the ANVC. The ANVC is dedicated to our stroke professionals, patients, and families. After a few years of practice I sought out the NVRN exam.  It is a board certification specifically for neurovascular nurses who focus specifically on acute neurovascular care. In the past year, I was made aware of the Advance Stroke Coordinator board certification.  This is the perfect fit for my role as stroke program manager.  I planned to conquer both the NVRN-BC and the ASC-BC exam in less than a year. I made this decision based on the associations mission and values.  This is an elite group of individuals dedicating their time to our stroke colleagues, patients, and families.  

I participated in the Advanced Stroke Coordinator-Rapid Review Course.  The review course was outstanding. I did like the option of virtual review for convenience during this time. Even though it was virtual, you felt comfortable as if we were together in a classroom.  This certification fits the Stroke Coordinator role perfectly. The course instructors Alica Richardson and Anne Alexandrov presented the material and related to our everyday practice.  I always learn something new, but the applications of neuro imaging WOW!!!

I have already benefitted from what I have learned in the review course. During a recent Code Stroke, we implemented our Code Stroke MRI process.  While in MRI, I was reviewing the imaging (not officially of course) and I reached out to our stroke neurologist.  I truly was testing my knowledge base from the course. I felt confident and empowered to reach out and speak up. I look forward to building my skills based on this course.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the stroke coordinator role.  The information provided will bring you to the next level of your practice.
