Basic Life Support is the foundation for saving lives during cardiac arrest.
In this class, you will learn the skills of high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for victims of all ages. Additionally, you will practice delivery of these skills both as a single rescuer plus as a member of a multi-rescuer team. Ultimately, the skills you learn in the Basic Life Support (BLS) course will enable you to recognize cardiac arrest; activate the emergency response system early; as well as respond quickly and confidently.
Tragically, if you allow your certification card to expire most facilities will send you home. Also, you will NOT be able to return to work until you possess a current card. Fortunately, Nurses Educational Opportunities has “your back.” There is a BLS instructor available in Orange County and San Diego 6 days a week to accommodate emergencies, such as expired cards. Nowadays, there are 2 ways to obtain your Basic Life Support (BLS) card; an Instructor-led course or the Heart-Code. The BLS Heart-Code requires the student to complete an on-line course and then schedule a skills check-off with a NEO BLS Instructor.
Furthermore, this class includes the AHA’s “Life is Why” mission.
“At the American Heart Association we want people to experience more of life’s precious moments. For this reason, we remain committed to exceptional training and of bringing resuscitation-science to life. Through genuine partnership with you, and our continued collaboration and dedication can we truly make a difference and save lives.
