BLS Training
The UK College of Nursing requires BLS certification from the American Heart Association for acceptance into the nursing program. Most nursing homes and hospitals require BLS training for nurse aides. If you already have a current BLS certification you do not need to take it again with the SRNA course.

BLS Training for the two-week Summer courses will be done differently and will be explained in an email to Summer registrants.
