Conclusions• The nursing and paramedic students’ self-perception of
knowledge retention and ability to perform CPR/BLS increased after the interprofessional learning activity.
• IP activity led to an increase of the students’ self-perception of knowledge retention and ability to perform CPR/BLS after the collaborative activity.
• The IP activity was more beneficial to the nursing students.
• However, both groups experienced an increased self-perception of knowledge retention and ability to perform CPR/BLS after simulation learning activities.
• Nursing students may benefit from curriculum integrating CPR/BLS knowledge and skill refreshment classes or annual CPR/ BLS competency validation.
