CPR Classes

You can learn to save a life by taking a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)/ Basic Life Support (BLS) class. With the skills and knowledge you learn upon completing a CPR/BLS class, you will learn to be able to recognize and respond to emergencies such as sudden cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in many parts of the world and is a national health concern. In the United States and Canada, approximately 350,000 people per year have a cardiac arrest and receive attempted resuscitation. This number does not include the substantial number of victims who have an arrest and do not receive attempted resuscitation.

Getting a certification in CPR/BLS means that you will be able to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and learn how to relieve choking (foreign-body airway obstruction). You will also be able to help victims of all ages while practicing CPR/BLS in a team setting.

The information and skills that you will learn in this class include the following:

  • Initiating the Chain of Survival
  • Performing prompt, high-quality chest compressions for adult, child, and infant victims
  • Initiating early use of an AED
  • Providing appropriate rescue breaths
  • Practicing 2-rescuer team CPR
  • Relieving choking

The College of Nursing and Health Sciences offers the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Basic Life Support (BLS)/CPR for Healthcare Providers course and other AHA course to new incoming nursing students on a regular basis.
