NRP is designed for healthcare professionals involved in neonatal resuscitation, including: physicians, nurses, advanced practice nurses, nurse midwives, licensed midwives, respiratory care practitioners, and emergency medical personnel.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) Course is an education program of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association that teaches an evidence-based approach to newborn care. The course introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation by utilizing a blended learning approach that includes: online testing, online case-based simulations, as well as hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication, and teamwork skills.
To successfully complete the course, participants must pass the online exam, complete eSim cases, demonstrate mastery of resuscitation skills in the Integrated Skills Station, and participate in simulated resuscitation scenarios.
NRP Certification does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation. Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.
Provider Curriculum, Part 1:
- Participants are required to self-study using the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th edition.
- The NRP Provider exams and eSim cases are done on the HealthStream Learning Management System.
- Provide verification of completion of the Provider Curriculum, Part 1 on the day of the course.
Provider Curriculum, Part 2:
The instructor-led event is used for hands-on practice and simulation/debriefing. NRP instructors support and evaluate individual skills, then integrate skills and knowledge with essential components of teamwork during simulated neonatal resuscitation scenarios.
During the instructor-led event, the learner must:
- Demonstrate each neonatal resuscitation skill.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the NRP Resuscitation Algorithm, while integrating cognitive and technical knowledge
Upon successful completion of Parts 1 and 2, participants are able to complete an online course evaluation and obtain the NRP eCard. Your NRP Provider status is valid for two years.
- Time: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
