I’ll be your instructor today.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with me. I am an AHA Certified Instructor and specialize in providing AHA Certification classes in ACLS, BLS, and PALS, for healthcare professionals and healthcare students throughout Long Island, New York.
I have been a clinical nursing educator for over 39 years. During those years, I have helped many thousands of nurses improve their own job performance, increase their own job satisfaction, and stay current with the newest techniques and regulations. I consider myself to be a nurse’s nurse because I am not hidden away in a classroom or office, but out on the floor every day – interacting with hospital management, the nurses, the patients, and the physicians.
For many years I was the Director of Nursing Education and Informatics at Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. I was in the LICH Nursing Education Department for 25 years. I developed the desire to teach nurses 35 years ago when I was an ICU nurse at Staten Island University Hospital. It was at SIUH that I realized that I could learn how to be a better nurse by teaching the other nurses. I haven’t stopped teaching since then.
I am also the Director of Medical Education at Dickson Keanaghan, LLC, a company that my husband Joe and I founded, where we train the medical staff at over 700 hospitals, surgicenters, medical offices, dental offices, walk-in medial offices, major drug stores, military bases, and colleges and universities throughout Long Island, New York City, and Westchester.
You can contact me if you have any questions about any aspect of nursing, or about my certification classes. I look forward to talking with you.
I come to Michele Kunz every time I need an AHA class because she is the greatest instructor, educator, teacher, nursing brain to ever walk on the planet.

Thank you so much for making a difficult topic (ACLS) so interesting and less mysterious. We all loved, loved, loved the injections of humor and personal anecdotes.
