Michele and Joe Kunz have created a business based on their love of teaching, helping others be successful, and for being together. Michele proudly says “teaching and sharing information is our life’s mission.”
Together they have been on the front-line of teaching and certifying healthcare professionals and students since 1984. They saw that there was a great need for educators that loved their subject matter, and that would treat their students with the respect they deserved. They have since built their medical training company into one of New York City’s and Long Island’s most popular American Heart Association certification companies. They train and certify the medical staff at over 600 hospitals, surgi-centers, medical offices, and universities.
Michele has been in nursing education for over 30 years. She is also the Director of Nursing Education at Mercy Medical Center on Long Island. Joe has been a business innovator and entrepreneur for over 30 years. He has been building and managing their business and finding and creating new and better ways to reach out and help more healthcare professionals be successful.
Over the years their classroom study materials developed a large national following. “In the early days we were creating, using, and distributing our own study materials before any existed in the marketplace,” Joe recalls. “Healthcare professionals and students were desperate for easy-to-use study materials. So we created them.” In 2003 they finally decided to branch into publishing with their Zombie Notes study charts and books. They have been national best-sellers for the last several years.
The Kunz’s have built their careers on providing fun, practical, timely, and informative classes, study materials, and videos that assist healthcare professionals and students in making our world a better place to live. Clearly, the art of educating is their passion, and it is one that Michele and Joe Kunz cherish.
•I liked the YouTube videos. Especially the heart-block videos. I used the Zombie Notes to memorize the algorithms because they are so concise. I especially loved the “songs” (shock, everybody shock). I used one on my last exam! I liked the low-stress environment in Michele’s class, which allows me to concentrate on the info that needs to be learned. I wish Michele lived in my apartment building! LOL. I loved the humor and jokes.
