    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

    Hey everyone! It's nice to see that alot of you are on the roll trying to get everything taken care of! I am trying too.. just seems like there's sooo much to do! lol.
    Anyways, does anybody know how much it will cost to take the CPR class through the medical campus? and how do I register? they don't seem to wanna answer their phones. On another note, I live in quantico/stafford area...anyone know of another place I can take the CPR class other than MEC which is also acceptable?
    One more thing..this may be a rather stupid question...but i read the info on BB regarding the name tags, but i'm getting two different info. under name tag ordering options, it says it has to be 3/4 of an inch high and under uniform ordering instructions, it says 1 inch high. which is right???
    Thanks.

    Yay! Then I guess I'll sign up now! I'm thrilled it's less expensive and shorter than MEC's!

    I'm 5'9, so I usually need a 33.5 inch inseam. Maybe they have more sizes if I actually go in to the bookstore. We'll see!

    just another student - if you go to heart.org you should be able to search for any cpr courses close to your location. Just make sure you pick the right course

    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

    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
