Education

Education CarringtonEmergency related education, knowledge and skills are vital to all community members whether they are in a healthcare profession or not. Regularly scheduled classes for the general public and healthcare professionals are offered by members of CHI St. Alexius Health Carrington's EMS Team. For more more information on the following courses, please contact the Carrington EMS Team at 701.652.2374.

Heartsaver CPR

This is a great class for law enforcement, fire/rescue, industrial first response groups, day care providers, coaches, and anyone wanting to be ready to help if the worst should happen. We never know when we will come across a situation requiring CPR; it could be in your home, at work, or simply when you are out and about in the community or on a trip.

Healthcare Provider CPR

This class is specifically built for those who are involved with direct patient care, such as nurses, CNAs, paramedics, EMTs, and ambulance drivers. These positions usually require an active certification and renewal every two years.

Advanced Cardiac Life Support

Physicians, mid-level providers, paramedics, nurses, and other advanced level healthcare providers are required to maintain proficiency in adult resuscitation knowledge and skills that go beyond basic chest compressions and rescue breathing. This class provides instruction and practice in a two-day format for new or expired certifications and a one-day format for renewals.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support

There are differences between adult and pediatric resuscitation. Similar to Advanced Cardiac Life Support, physicians, mid-level providers, paramedics, nurses, and other advanced level healthcare providers are required to maintain proficiency in advanced pediatric resuscitation knowledge and skills. This class provides instruction and practice in a two-day format for new or expired certifications and a one-day format for renewals.

Trauma Nursing Core Course

Multiple trauma has become known as the most neglected disease of the decade. Trauma kills more people between the ages of 15 & 24 – more than all other causes combined. It is also the leading cause of death and disability for all age groups up to the age of 45.

The Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) recognized that these statistics were grim reminders that the lack of prompt, definitive and standardized trauma care was producing fragmented, and presumably substandard, care for trauma patients. The ability to provide a mechanism that would elevate the quality of care for trauma victims became a priority within the association.

The Trauma Nursing Core Course has been designed by nurses for nurses. Its intent is to provide a consistent knowledge base and approach nurses rendering trauma care. This course will enhance cognitive skills, sharpen technical skills and provide a foundation for future learning. Its ultimate purpose is to improve the level of care provided in emergency care settings – large, small, rural and urban.
