"Comprehensive and thorough course. The grss dosage was completely new to me, as we don't use that here in the U.K., but found it very interesting and definitely a worthwhile course to do. I would like to see courses on: Anaesthetic nursing, Infectious diseases, more drug calculations."  - A.C., RN, CA
