i received my cpr card when i was in cna school. now, i would like to apply for nursing school and for the cpr it says it needs to have this:

adult cpr

child cpr

infant cpr

which i have listed on my card, however these are also required for ns and i don't have these:

1 and 2 man rescuer

evidence of a land-based demonstration competent

does anybody know the requirements for cpr for ns? isn't this supposed to be the same card and do i need to pay for cpr training again?

Are you applying to the MCCD nursing program? I haven't seen any CPR requirement on the MCCD application.

Is the card that you have say BLS (basic life support) or Health Care Provider BLS? If you have the Health Care Provider care, you should be just fine as that training covers all the requirements you need. I teach CPR, thats how I know.

Oh, okay. There are different requirements for the LPN program than the RN program.

It sounds like your CPR card will be fine.

Good luck!

I went to RSAA for my CNA and was told that what we got from them was NOT enough for NS so I have to take another CPR class somewhere else.

I plan on going to CAC and they require the Healthcare card "C," whatever that means. :spin:

It might be different for you though.
