BLS for Healthcare at JSCC in July

Jun 9th, 2022

Jackson State Community College’s Division of Workforce Solutions is offering the American Heart Association’s Basic Life Support for Health Providers course in July. HeartCode BLS uses the latest eSimulation technology to enable students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings.

The course teaches Basic Life Support knowledge and skills online by utilizing various eLearning assets such as dramatizations, simulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities. A hands-on session is scheduled with an AHA instructor to demonstrate competency in the course material. After completing both the eLearning and hands-on session of the BLS Course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of high-quality CPR and its impact on survival
  • Describe all of the steps of the Chain of Survival and apply the BLS concepts of the Chain of Survival

  • Perform high-quality CPR for adults, children, and infants
  • Describe the importance of early use of an AED and demonstrate its use
  • Provide effective ventilations by using a barrier device
