Empowering Nursing Students to Help Save Lives
In their recent studies, Dr. Marilyn H. Oermann and Dr. Suzan Kardong-Edgren proved that nursing students do not retain their CPR psychomotor skills in the few months after their traditional 2-year certification which, in turn, impacts their ability to save lives.

Although evidence supports brief, frequent CPR training, optimal training intervals have not been established. The purpose of this study was to compare nursing students’ CPR skills (compressions and ventilations) with 4 different spaced training intervals: daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly, each for 4 times in a row.
