    Hi There,

    thanks again for the info about the INOVA BLS class.
    I finally dropped the class that I registered from MEC and register from INOVA instead.
    How long is the class?
    was it hard?

    Many thanks

    Yes INOVA is acceptable and we did infant cpr, child cpr, adult cpr, defribiliation and aed, choking, advanced airway. It's the same book for the bls because as long as it is AHA! I'm 5 7 I hope they aren't too short.

    I must say there is just SO much to do! Blah blah blahhh

    Did the INOVA send you the material? (books,etc)
    They sent me a confirmation email and under the confirmation,there is this information:

    If you register for a class less than 1 week (5 business days) prior to its start, your mailed materials may not reach you before your class. Loaner books are available to use during the class. If you prefer to receive a book prior to class, please register for a class at a later date. Exception: Infant CPR classes and Family & Friends books are distributed in class.

    the class is $120, plus the book costs around $17 at amazon but i think it's available at barnes for $15. registration is online.

    click H for Healthcare Provider, BLS/CPR and then that redirects you to the registration and payment page. I was having problems registering online yesterday bec they don't accept all credit cards, but VISA should be fine.

    it's more expensive than what INOVA offers.

    nat, CPR should be the easiest class we take as nurses... just pay attention and you'll do fine.

    They didn't send mine because I didn't register 5 days before but if you do they will. But if you want me to be 100% i didn't even open the book. They taught me everything I need to know, at a slow pace, and I felt extremely prepared because they were such good teachers! I've never taken CPR before and by the end of the class she stated that i learned it the quickest since it was so new. You will be fine

    I went to the AHA's website, where I clicked on a link to find training centers for the BLS Healthcare Provider course. One of them is called EnjoyCPR (enjoycpr.com), where they offer the course for $75. The fee includes the books and/or training materials. It's 3 hours long. I e-mailed them to see what exactly is included in the course, as I've read classes to last at least 4.5 hours or more for certification

    I took the class long time ago, but it was a 6 weeks class.
    At first,I can't imagine how they teach all the materials in 5 hours
    After read some comment in this blog, I feel better now

    thank you
