Devin Davis and his family help nurses stay on the floor with their flexible certification courses.

Being there when it matters the most has always been a rule in the Davis household.
From nurses to firefighters, Devin Davis saw it all around him growing up.
It’s no wonder the family business revolves around keeping those front line professionals on the front lines when it matters the most.
Davis is a driving force behind Heartland CPR, a business his mother and father began more than 15 years ago.
The Davis family has built Heartland CPR into a successful business that revolves around providing life-saving skills in a fun, friendly environment.
Heartland CPR offers courses in CPR, AED, First Aid, Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) as well the addition of Pet First Aid + CPR.
Flexibility and customer service drive Heartland.
Devin’s mother, Ginger, coordinates with individual travel nurses and travel nursing agencies who appreciate that Heartland provides training in multiple disciplines in a single weekend. Heartland even partners with nearly hotels to offer discount accommodations to out-of-town overnight customers.
But that’s what Heartland specializes in, getting medical professionals the training and documentation they need when they need it.
One in-demand course is the S.T.A.T. program which stands for Sequentially Timed Accelerated Training. Nurses can renew the entire BLS, ACLS and PALS certification suite in a weekend.
Despite the demand, classes are limited to 10 people each.
It’s a Heartland tenet to ensure the quality of the training and the ability for students to ask questions and truly grasp the material.
To keep up, Heartland simply adds more classes. And the company’s ability to deliver training wherever the client needs it has made Heartland a nurse favorite.
From doctors to dental assistants to oil field companies, Heartland can put together a training package that fits the need.
Heartland has also become a leading supplier of AED equipment to local businesses, covering both training and equipment sales.
Devin dove deep into the family business, understanding the why as well as the how behind life-saving skills.
Not only did he enjoy teaching, he enjoyed what he was teaching.
“I like to make sure people understand the science behind it,” Davis said of the CPR classes he teaches. “You’d be shocked at how many people who don’t understand – especially ones first going into EMT or nursing school – the basic principles of CPR and what we’re actually doing. They know how to do it, they just don’t know we’re trying to fill that heart up with blood and pump that oxygenated blood into the brain and then back down to the heart.” Along the way he’s learned how to reach students that range from 18 to 80-year-olds.
