Empowering Nursing Students to Help Save More Lives: Path to High-Quality CPR Skills and Competence
Studies show that resuscitation skill degradation occurs as soon as three months after completing a traditional 2-year CPR certification training1 which decreases the chance of survival of patients.
For over 10 years, the Resuscitation Quality Improvement® (RQI®) program has been delivering quarterly high-quality CPR skills training in +2,000 hospitals as well as nursing programs. Students with RQI certification demonstrate stronger CPR competency going into the workforce which gives them an employment advantage.

RQI® for Nursing Education is powered by the American Heart Association's (AHA) grounded educational research and science, and Laerdal's simulation technology with real-time audio and video feedback. Together with RQI Partners and the National League for Nursing (NLN), we partnered to encourage nursing programs to adopt the RQI for Nursing Education program.
Watch the video to see how 12 schools have revolutionized their High-Quality CPR training by adopting RQI® for Nursing Education.

Empower and equip learners for success
True Adaptive™ Learning helps tailor assessments and learnings to the needs of each student.
Frequent (every three months) but short training sessions build muscle memory while fine-tuning skillsets.
This method is proven to increase knowledge retention and aid the development of psychomotor skills necessary to administer high-quality CPR.
As the program can be completed from the station, this also provides students continued access to complete training on their own time.
Dr. Marylin Oermann detail what her years of research with Dr.Suzie Kardong-Edgren have revealed: low-dose high-frequency CPR skills training works.
