Education Services

The education department provides CPR training and Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support for all employees who provide care to the patients. The CPR renewals are offered once a month and the ACLS classes are held 5 times a year to assure everyone can attend. These certifications are renewed every two years to update the employees on  new and current practices in the care of our patients.

The education department also coordinates with Heartland Health and Hiawatha Hospital to offer classes not available at Atchison Hospital at this time.  All American Heart Association CPR and ACLS classes as well as Emergency Nurses Association Trauma Nursing Core Courses and Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course are available to the public.

All complete an annual competency evaluation to assure competency and to update them on changes in policy or procedures. The education department is accredited by the Kansas State Board of Nursing as a provider of  continuing education for nurses.   All continuing education programs are available to the public.  At the request of any department manager, the education department provides specific educational classes to the staff to assure that they are up to date on current technology and procedures.

All this is to assure that our nurses are able to provide the best care right here!
