Health and nutrition classes are requirements for Sullivan's Professional Nanny diploma and Associate of Science degree in Early Childhood Education (ECE). Promoting and
teaching safety is an outcome of these programs as well as requirements for the American Council of Nanny Schools (ACNS) accreditation and state licensing for child care providers in an administrative role. Students become certified in Infant, Child and Adult CPR through the American Heart Association or the Red Cross by attending training, completing a written test, and demonstrating appropriate procedures and techniques. In order to receive this two year certification, students must also be able to explain and demonstrate appropriate First Aid measures for various situations, which arise while caring for an infant or child. The ECE department at Sullivan uses community and faculty resources to teach the students required CPR and First Aid skills.
