CPR-Effective November 1, 2015
A course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation must be completed prior to the scheduled orientation date. Students are required to provide documentation of the current professional-level CPR course. The required CPR course MUST be the BLS for Healthcare Providers course earned through the American Heart Association (AHA). No other course will be accepted. When submitting documentation of AHA certification a copy of the card or the eCard may be used. The card must be signed, and the front and back of the card must be copied. If submitting the eCard certificate of completion, it must show the unique ID and QR code for verification purposes. Letters verifying completion are no longer being accepted. Students who fail to complete the approved course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation will be administratively dropped from the program. Students must maintain current CPR certification throughout the nursing program.
