Skills and Procedures Classes:
Just attended a two-day skills course in Omaha,NE, and learned more there than in all of my NP clinicals put together! I highly recommend this to NPs, PAs, and NP students! I plan to take more classes in the near future! Excellent class! A.B.
Class: Cleveland, OH
16-19 March 2016 . The atmosphere was great for all levels to learn. I was lucky that they were coming to my state but I was considering taking a small vacation to travel to a location. I will probably take another class or two during my clinicals to refresh basic procedures. The amount of info covered is amazing. Everyone had a chance to practice the skills without feeling rushed. I feel more comfortable with basic procedures. S.R.
Awesome experience. I am a NP student and these classes helped me to feel much more confident in my clinical skills. Amazing instructors that provide individualized attention to help each student improve their skills. Highly recommended! A.W.
Simply amazing workshop. As a new NP this was a great confidence booster for my entrance into primary care. Thank you so much!! S.V.A.
Great classes - amazing instructors that make learning so much fun! C.R.G.
Great hands on learning in an intimate class! Definitely worth the cost , no dull moments! J.B.H.
Thank you so much for the course! It was awesome...everything I wanted to learn in school and did not. I plan to incorporate these procedures into the practice I work at instead of referring out :) S.F
Ava, really enjoyed the 2 day procedures class in Des Moines. Thanks again! M.W.
I'm sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight back up to the Bay Area, and I didn't want to leave without letting you know how much I enjoyed the class!! The info and instruction were great, but I think what made it super cool was the energy between you two! It was a great display of "tag-team" effort that just made everything flow. So thanks for that as well! Oh and the emails leading up to the class were spot-on! M.G.O
I can not believe the program is over, but before I leave I want to thank you for your guidance and words of encouragement during this program. You are an amazing instructor who really has inspired me. Keep up with your good work and please keep in touch. Best regards,
A.V. RN, MSN, WHNP, FNP
Thank you so very much for the manner in which you facilitated this class. I learned so much from you in class AND it was so much FUN! When I tell people about this class what I continue to hear is that they didn't have this opportunity when they were in NP school, so I am so grateful for it. I always learned from your feedback, and I really appreciate the design of Lab and this class. It is invaluable. I trust all is well with you. Please know how deeply you are appreciated.
It's been a pleasure to learn from you. You are inspiring and hope to have expertise like yours in the future. Thank you for teaching me things more about nursing. Hope to see you again in the near future. You're a good model for us students.
I just wanted to say it was great to meet you and you were wonderful. I learned so much and your high energy and comic relief was great. I hope you never change your teaching approach! Good luck to you and yours. Hope to have another class with you soon!
I want you to know I enjoyed the class and particularly remember information from experiences you shared from your practice.
Just finished up with a two day program I would recommend to anyone wanting to be prepared for clinical to take these classes.
Best thing ever! L.Y.
Best classes ever!! I have thoroughly enjoyed this class and learned so much!!! Well worth the money spent!! C.W.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for hosting the procedures workshop. I feel like I learned so much, and even though I don't feel 100% comfortable doing everything yet, this has made me more confident to just jump in and that it's not as hard as it looks once I do it several times! As a new provider, it also is very inspirational to hear all that you do and are involved with and in fact, I have been contemplating going back to school to get my DNP in the next few years. It would be great to "find my niche" as well! Thanks again! M.C.
so so soooo nice to meet you and learn from you, love your class, your teaching style, all of your insights and suggestions, the class flew by! Jackie and I would LOVE to take the More Procedures Workshop....
We will most likely book another class in 2016...., so we're glad we'll be receiving emails now from you!
Lisa was wonderful also, and the Doctor, (your brother in law), so nice, and he was so helpful w/ my suturing, I surprised myself, "I finally got the hang of it!" woohoo! Thank you again for all the fun, levity, and learning!
you have found your niche, to be sure!
This procedure class turned out to be greater than my expectation. You guys are awesome. T.N.
Thank you for letting me attend your Overland Park, Kansas procedures seminar this Tuesday. The course was amazing and I look forward to taking the other ones you offer in the future. Thank you again for making me feel so welcome. M.M.
What a fantastic, well organized course! Bryan & Ava are so knowledgeable! Thank you so much for offering a course that is applicable to my future career as an NP!
I was a participant in the 2 days skills workshop last week end (2/26-2/27) in Carlsbad, Ca. I had my first patient with complaint of foreign body in eye. I did not panic. I remembered everything we discussed including documentation of eyelid eversion, drawing picture of eye and location of foreign body. Prior to this course, I would have been in an absolute panic. I am looking forward to taking more courses with you guys. L.H 3/3/16
Awesome experience. I am a NP student and these classes helped me to feel much more confident in my clinical skills. Amazing instructors that provide individualized attention to help each student improve their skills. Highly recommended! A.W. 8/16
This was such an amazing weekend! I learned so much and had so much fun doing it. There was never a boring moment and I feel so energized to return to practice and apply what I've learned! B.M. 1/17
Great class. If you have a chance and money to attend I recommend. H.H. 1/17
So very glad I went to this! Very informative and would suggest going! A.H.B. 7/17
Gonna do it again asap! K.V. 8/17
I took this course in Atlanta to help me prepare for my upcoming FNP practicum (for an online-based NP program). I feel much more prepared and confident in my skills after taking the two day workshop. Highly recommend!!!! A.K. 10/17
I learned so much in the 4 days of courses I just completed in Palm Springs. The best part is that I will take back what I learned and start using it immediately. The hands on portion was extremely helpful as I am a "hands on" learner but I loved having the didactic portion as well to look back on for guidance if I need it. I recommend this class to anyone and everyone, whether you have experience or not, you will definitely come away with more knowledge and confidence in procedures. Thanks again! A.J. 12/17
I just finished the Palm Springs Workshop. Received great training on various skills and procedures that I most definitely will be able to use in my practice. I feel more confident and reassured because of these wonderful tools that will provide me with the opportunity to offer a broader range of services to my patients. A. 12/17
Fun learning environment! Learned all the skills I need to be able to reduce referrals out of office for many basic procedures. Plenty of hands-on practice and good feedback. Definitely recommend for anyone who needs to brush up or for those who did not receive procedures training in their program. S.S. 1/18
Just finished the 2 day course and more procedures workshop in Tampa. It was great ! Ava and Donna are awesome ! I will be attending your classes again. Thanks for doing this, it is much needed. S.R. 2/18
Amazing team to learn from. M.G.T. 5/18
Great course! Very well taught! Instructors are personable and made the class a lot of fun. S.G. 3/19
The class was really informative and well taught. I have already made my money back with the procedures I have done since the class. B.B.M. 4/19
Classes were well taught and provided the necessary information needed to enhance my skills as a Primary Care Provider.
Learning environment provided adequate amount of props and time to practice.
Instructor and fellow providers helped each other out when extra supervision was needed.
Would highly recommend to all primary providers and students.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a better skilled provider! M.A. 5/19
Took the 2 day course in Atlanta, Ga. my only regret was not being able to attend all of the classes! Great instructors, hands on training. Learned a lot of new tips and and I can’t say enough about our instructors this weekend Suzy and Brandi. Will definitely return for additional classes. I recommend this to new and seasoned FNP’s. Very impressed with the skills lab portion. I will definitely be using all of the information that I learned in my future practice. S.S. 9/19
I absolutely loved loved this course. Just finished 3 days and it was amazing. The instructors are competent and really know how to teach the information so that everyone understands it. There is also a lot of hands on training, which is also great. I recommend this program for every new grad. Definitely worth every penny!!!! T.P. 9/19
An amazing experience, I spent 3 days with 2 instructors and they were worth every dollar. As a new nurse practitioner the lack of skills taught in school is intimidating. I work in the urgent care as a nurse practitioner and have an ER back ground in nursing. This is an amazing class and could help anyone out. F.L. 10/19
I attended APP (Advanced Practice Prep) this weekend in Oklahoma City. Anyone that is just starting out and didn’t get appropriate training or those in practice for years needing CEU’s, I HIGHLY recommend this course! Suzy Ruxton and her partner put on a top notch weekend skills event. If your looking to learn skills or need CEU’s this is your go to place!!Thanks for an amazing weekend & teaching me skills I was not taught in my clinical experience!! I give Advanced Practice Prep ( APP) a 5-star review. T.G. 10/19
APP is an amazing company with decades of experience and the ORIGINAL Nurse Practitioner education of procedures company! If you want to learn...this is THE PLACE!!! B.H. 1/2020
This course was great. I learned so much that by the time we got to extremity radiographs, my brain felt fried. I have done 2 other CEU courses for reading chest x-rays and this interactive approach was a lot more helpful. J.W. Online Xray- 8/2020
I took your online Xray class with Suzy on December 7th. She was AMAZING and so informative! I highly recommend this company, it's been a pleasure from start to finish. I'll 'see' you next week Suzy for the online skills course! Chris 12/2020
Excellent review! I rarely have opportunity to suture in primary care but feel like I could do a better job after this program. The hands on tools and model were great! S.W. 2022
I love how thoroughly Dr. Chase explains everything thing. She is efficient but covers all of the material we need to know. I have a much better understanding of what needles and threads should be used and why, and the videos were great! The materials for practice were provided and perfect to continue practicing. I highly recommend this course! C.L. 2022
Wow, this course was so very informative! I love the videos too! Great job! P.G. 2022
Excellent review course on these procedures! Also, excellent for new grads. R.K. 2022 (returning student)
