Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers

Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers

A fast-paced BLS course for healthcare providers who must have a credential documenting successful completion of CPR.  Learn how to recognize life-threatening emergencies, perform CPR, manage foreign body airway obstructions, use bag-valve-masks (BVM’s), and operate an automated external defibrillator (AED). Successful completion of the BLS course results in a 2-year American Heart Association certification.  Class is limited to 20 students. Note:  This is a required course for all pre-nursing students.

BLS courses are scheduled on an as needed basis. Please contact Diane Bordonaro, RN, at dbordonaro@mxcc.edu for more information.
