About Our Publishing Business

The Zombie Notes can be purchased as laminated charts from Amazon.com; and they may also be downloaded instantly from Scribd.com/.
Our publishing company also made history by being the first to publish a student-friendly, reader-friendly, teacher-friendly edition of Florence Nightingale's "Notes on Nursing".

Most of our publications are available though Amazon, Ingram Books, and Baker and Taylor.
About Our Principals
Michele G. Kunz, MSN, ANP, RN-BC
Director of Medical Training
Michele is an AHA Certified Instructor and specializes in providing AHA Certification classes in ACLS, BCLS, PALS, and PEARS.
Michele has been a clinical nursing educator for over 25 years. During those years, she has helped many thousands of nurses and healthcare professionals improve their own job performance and increase their own job satisfaction. Michele considers herself to be a nurse's nurse, because she is not hidden away in a classroom or office, but out on the floor everyday - interacting with hospital management, the nurses, the patients, and the physicians.
For many years Michele was the Director of Nursing Education and Informatics at Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. She was in the LICH Nursing Education Department for 25 years. Michele developed the desire to teach nurses over 30 years ago when she was an ICU nurse at Staten Island University Hospital. It was at SIUH that she realized that she could learn how to be a better nurse by teaching the other nurses. Michele hasn't stopped teaching since then.
Kunz is now the Director of Nursing Education and Research at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, Long Island, NY.
Kunz is also the Director of Medical Training at Dickson Keanaghan, LLC, a company that she helped create with her husband Joseph. Dickson Keanaghan annually trains and certifies the medical staff of over 600 hospitals, medical offices, and surgi-centers on Long Island and New York City.
