CPR Certification

Students entering nursing programs are required to have completed a Health Care Provider CPR course (i.e., adult, infant, and child with AED). This course may be obtained at the local Red Cross, American Heart Association, or an approved facility. A card or letter demonstrating completion of the course must be presented to the School of Nursing. This letter or card is required of all beginning nursing students (AASN and BSN). Annual proof of continued certification for the entire academic year is required. It is the students’ responsibility to maintain current CPR certification. If not current the student will not be allowed to remain in clinical.
