The School of Nursing offers CPR Certification Classes once a month. The course offered is known as the American Heart Association (AHA) Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers (includes AED training). Classes are offered on Saturday mornings. Some Saturdays we are able to offer more than one class.

This class is offered in two parts. First, you will complete online training (via the link we provide) which is a cost $28.50 cost. At the end of the online session, you will get a certificate of completion to print.

 After completing the online lessons, you must attend a skills practice and testing session on our campus with a certified instructor.  The skills session lasts approximately 2.5 hours. The cost for the skills session and card processing fee for of the course is $30 payable by cash or check to the instructor on the day of the class. Total cost of the two parts of the class is $58.50.  You must bring the certificate of completion and photo id. to skills session or you will not be able to do the skills testing portion. The CPR cards are usually ready the week after the class. You will receive an email when your eCard is available.
