Lisa’s last class in Vegas is now closed, and the waiting list is long. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we have utilized all possible space for the seminar at the hotel.
Consider attending Rebecca’s class in 2019, the first is in San Diego,
January 28-29, 2019.
Be aware that there are a limited number of both the Advanced Fetal Monitoring and the EFM Review seminars in 2019.
We had to close 2 sessions in 2018 and anticipate this may happen again in 2019.
We strongly suggest that you register early!
PEC profoundly thanks Lisa A. Miller for her devotion to education, especially in regards to Fetal Monitoring!
Lisa is handing over the reins of PEC’s Fetal Monitoring education to Rebecca Cypher, RNC, MSN, PNNP for 2019.
She is not retiring, so you will continue to learn from Lisa within her private programs and endeavors with PRMES.
