Nursing Resuscitation Classes

Our hospital is an American Heart Association Community Training Center and offers the following classes:

Family & Friends (F & F) CPR

This program contains information on how to perform basic skills of CPR for adults, children and infants and how to help an adult, child or infant who is choking.

HeartSaver AED

The HeartSaver (HS) AED course teaches the basic techniques of infant, child and adult CPR, including use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). Students also learn to use barrier devices in CPR and give first aid for choking. The course teaches how to recognize the signs of 3 major emergencies: heart attack, stroke, and choking.

This class is for healthcare professionals. This class is available to Healthcare Providers who are employees of Lurie Children’s. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a HCP CPR card that is good for 2 years.

Emergency Nursing Association Sponsored Courses

Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC)

The ENPC course teaches registered nurse participants to recognize the ill or injured child and identify significant, yet subtle changes in the less acute child. Additionally, the course covers all aspects of pediatric emergency nursing, including, but not limited to pediatric trauma and pediatric resuscitation. The ultimate goal of the course is to improve the care of the pediatric patient by increasing the knowledge, skill, and confidence of emergency nurses.

This class is for registered nurses. Learn more about the course on the Emergency Nurses Association site.

Neonatal Classes

In conjunction with Northwestern University’s Perinatal Center, we also offer Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) courses and STABLE courses.

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program materials are based on the American Academy of Pediatrics and American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary. Register for the NRP course on the Feinberg School of Medicine website.

This class is for any member of the neonatal resuscitation team.

S.T.A.B.L.E.

The STABLE Program is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention and recall of information, S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessments and care modules in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. A seventh module, Quality Improvement stresses the professional responsibility of improving and evaluating care provided to sick infants.

This class is for any healthcare professional who routinely provides care to the neonatal patient.

For more information and to register for S.T.A.B.L.E. courses, please visit the Northwestern Perinatal website.
