IDABEL, OK (Dec. 20, 2017) – Eastern Oklahoma State College recently hosted Air Evac Lifeteam for a two-day workshop for nursing students attending classes at Southeastern’s McCurtain County Campus. The class focused on advanced cardiac life support and provided students an opportunity to tour one of the service’s ambulatory helicopters.
“We are honored to facilitate this kind of hands-on training for our students,” said Nursing Professor Jamie Fields. “We appreciate Air Evac Lifeteam visiting our campus to provide this valuable training.”
Air Evac Lifeteam is part of AirMedicalGroup Holdings, the world’s largest helicopter air ambulance company, and operates more than 130 air medical bases across 15 states. Nurses and paramedics employed with Lifeteam routinely offer training workshops to nursing students and emergency responders in an effort to ensure safety in the line of duty.
While not required for nursing licensure, this certification is strongly recommended for most nursing positions.
Enrollment for the spring semester is open now, with classes starting Jan. 8. Applications to enter the nursing program must be submitted by Feb. 15 for classes in the fall. Also, scholarship applications are due by Feb. 21. For more information, visit eosc.edu/nursing or call 918-465-2361.
