Due to the recent events and campus restrictions, we are modifying our BLS and First Aid classes to reflect the recommendations of the American Heart Association (AHA) and community policy. The classes will be set up to reflect these changes and shortened for our health & safety. These restrictions include:

  • Limit class to groups of 10 or less
  • Avoid Close Contact (6ft)
  • Wash hands and cover sneezes/coughs – use hand sanitizer regularly
  • Adhere to AHA Covid19 classroom recommendations – No pocket masks and 1-1 checks.
  • If you are sick – don’t come to class

If you have any questions pertaining to CPR or First-Aid, please email BLSClasses@nursing.utexas.edu.


American Heart Association (AHA) Heartsaver First-Aid and AHA Basic Life Support (BLS) Provider (CPR) is an instructor-led and video-based course that teaches nursing students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency or until emergency medical services arrive. Skills covered in this course include the use of an AED for adult, child and infant; choking relief in adults and infants; and to promptly recognize a life-threatening emergency. The course teaches skills with the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback, and guide the students’ learning of skills.
