Getting CPR Certified

AS519 AS519 (New) New

I hear that once I get my acceptance into the Ocean County College Nursing Program, I need to be CPR certified. I went on the American Heart Association website because I was told I could get certified through a class there, but there are 28 different courses to choose from. Does anyone know which is the correct class to take? Is it Heartsaver CPR or BLS for Healthcare Providers? Or is it something else? I want to make sure I do the correct one.

Yes, should be BLS for Healthcare Providers, but that info should also be available through your school's application paperwork or website (or you can call).
