Education Opportunities

Congratulations and welcome to Banner Staffing Services and to the beginning of your journey with Banner Health.

As you get ready for Employee Orientation, and possibly Simulation Training, we have gathered training materials and study guides to review or download to help prepare you.

Materials are in an Adobe PDF format. If you are having difficulties accessing the links below, we have included a guide to assist you.

ECG Study Guides & Practice Test

ECG -ECG testing is conducted on the first day of orientation. Please make sure that you review the ECG Material. Depending on your area of Clinical expertise, we have the following study guide for your review:

If you fail to identify any of the following rhythms, you will automatically fail the exam, even if your test score is above the passing score.

  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Asystole
  • Torsade de pointes

If you correctly identify those four rhythms and achieve an overall score of at least 85 percent, you have passed the exam.

Any questions you have concerning the exam questions should be sent to Larry Lybbert at (480) 684-6428 or Angela Stone at (480) 684-6427.

There is also a Practice ECG Test with answer key for your review.
