Undergraduate BLS (Basic Life Support) Training
Time & Location
About The Event
Creighton University’s Pipeline to Success Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) has partnered with the Creighton University EMS Department and American Heart Association to offer our students the opportunity to participate and receive Basic Life Support (BLS) certified training which will adequately prepare our future health professionals with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to respond in emergency situations. KEYWORD: Certified – each HCOP student that participates will receive an official BLS Certification. During the training, each HCOP student will gain muscle memory as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills required to be ready to respond to life-threatening emergencies. HCOP students will also learn how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED) safely and swiftly assist a choking victim.
WHEN: Saturday, January 11, 2020
MEET-UP LOCATION (this is where HCOP participants will meet HCOP staff):
Creighton University - Hixson-Lied Science Building
2555 Burt Street
Suite G-13 (located in the Atrium)

NOTE: This certified training occurs during our regularly scheduled HCOP session (as stated on each student’s HCOP Program Session Calendar); therefore, this event is mandatory for those who are not BLS certified or seeking recertification.
