The School of Nursing is committed to providing our community with practical health education.
In a cardiovascular emergency, victims have seconds to minutes to have blood and oxygen circulated to their vital organs in order to survive. Basic Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) allows friends, family or bystanders to provide lifesaving circulation until help arrives. CPR skills are taught using the American Heart Association Friends and Family program. Only two hours are needed to learn this life saving skill.
“Stop the Bleed” is a nationwide movement to teach everyone to be a first responder in a bleeding emergency, whether the bleeding is caused by a kitchen accident or a large scale disaster. Being able to control external bleeding is key to victim survival. This two hour, mostly hands on course teaches participants how to apply tourniquets and direct pressure, and to bandage wounds.
