    I know for sure I have to take the CPR Class and which one I have to take...my college offers it, so I'll take that one. I just wasn't sure on the timing. I am signed up for it this fall, so I think I am just going to keep it just in case because I am hearing different things from different people. It may be that I don't have to take it until next Summer before the semester starts, but I just want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row here!!

    Thanks so much for responding!! I appreciate it!! Good luck everyone!!

    about CPR?

    I have been told by a few people that I need CPR before I actually submit my paperwork for the Nursing Program. I called the Nursing Office and this woman keeps telling me no. Now, for the past few years I recall being told in the informational class that you do need it.

    So, what does your school do? Do they require it before your paperwork is due or just before you actually start the Nursing Program?
    Bottom line, no matter what anyone else's personal experience is on this, is that you need to be sure what YOUR school program requires.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd just get the CPR class over with and have it ready for whenever they ask! Why wait? You'll have to renew it at some point during or immediately after school anyway. Just do it.

    Exactly!!! That is what I was thinking - I will have to renew yearly no matter what, so what is the difference if I take it now or later? Thanks!

    We had to include a copy of our CPR card in our application package. Then we have to renew it throughout the program.
