What Your Peers Are Saying
“Patton’s teaching style is alert, positive, and to the point. I’m looking forward to the other courses he comes up with.”
Nora Vince, NP-C
“Really great course.”
Wes Smith, FNP-BC
“I’m an ED doc for 21 years now. I did not expect this course to teach me anything. I was wrong. Maybe that says something about me … maybe it says something about the course. I recommend it.”
J. D. C.
“Finally, a suture course worth the effort, money, time, all of it. I will be reviewing my notes from this course daily, as I practice in an emergency department and close a lot of lacerations.”
Bill Crandall, FNP
“School rotations included some surgical technique and I remembered some of it. What I learned from this course has improved my practice, and I’m grateful.”
John Birch, PA-C
“Everything I never knew I needed to know. Wow!”
Melany Thomas, NP
“I loved every minute of this course. Patton is extremely easy to follow, he has passion – I wish he taught other procedures. I will tell everybody about this course!”
Cindy McCall, MSN, RN, FNP-BC
“We will recommend this course to our next round of students. Totally gets it right. Well put together and the value was completely there. Evidence based practice through-and-through.”
Carson Smith-Weathers, ENP, MHA
