  • My name is Brenda Overton. I have been a registered nurse since 1983. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Coppin State University and Master of Science Degree in Nursing Education from Bowie State University

  • I am a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) graduate of Coppin State University. The infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) website was developed for partial fulfillment for the DNP degree. 

  • The infant CPR website was created for African American parents.

  • Cardio refers to the heart, pulmonary refers to the lungs, and resuscitation refers to restore.

  • Knowing CPR can help parents support and maintain breathing and circulation for an infant whose heart has stopped beating.  

  • This site contains a list of organizations that offer infant CPR education and infant safety information in the Baltimore metropolitan area.
