Ursuline College is an early adopter of a new program aimed at improving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The College’s Breen School of Nursing and Health Professions will be one of the first nursing programs in the country – and the only program in Northern Ohio – to adopt a new educational program to ensure competency in CPR.
The National League for Nursing selected the Breen School as Change Agent for the Resuscitation Quality Improvement® (RQI®) program to ensure that students maintain a high level of competency in patient resuscitation. RQI®’s digital approach helps nursing students achieve sustained mastery of high-quality CPR skills and verified competence through short, quarterly practice and review sessions.

Because of extensive faculty contacts, students secure excellent field placements as undergraduates and these often lead to full-time jobs in Cleveland's top hospitals after graduation.
