"The number one thing I'm going to say is sit for your cert exam, I cannot stress this enough, study, take the exam, you'll pass. You already are prepped and ready for it based on all your BLD coursework and clinicals that you went through."
"The next thing I'm going to recommend is that you just be involved. So this can mean that you work on projects such as validation studies, or writing your training manuals, or even creating procedures for like a massive transfusion protocol with your ER."
