Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

The NRP course is an education program of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association which conveys an evidence-based approach to care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery.  NRP utilizes a blended learning approach, which includes online testing, online case-based simulations, and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication, and team-work skills.
Participants study the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, or view the textbook DVD-ROM and pass the online test in the 30 days prior to attending an NRP course. Class time is used for hands-on practice and simulation/debriefing. Instructors support and evaluate individual skills, then integrate skills and knowledge with essential components of teamwork during simulated neonatal resuscitation scenarios.

The NRP Provider Course allows ample time for individualized hands-on skills development and practice with an NRP Instructor. Every attempt is made to tailor the course instruction and simulation training to fit the participant’s clinical practice.
