The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. This program teaches basic resuscitation skills for newly born infants.

This class is intended for healthcare providers who perform resuscitation in the delivery room or newborn nursery. Providers who take NRP are diverse in their scope of practice. The course outline is flexible to allow providers to complete specific modules directly related to their practice.

The cost of this course is $275 and includes the New 7th Edition Provider Manual E-Book.. Please register and pay for the course here:
You will receive your same day AAP/AHA NRP Provider card at the end of class.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program™ (NRP) teaches the concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation and is sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association.

The course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn to hospital staff who care for newborns at the time of delivery, including physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists.

This course is recommended for those that have experience in a birth setting or care for newborns in the immediate postpartum period.

The 7th Edition, released in 2015, is based on simulation methodology, enhancing development of critical leadership, communication and team work skills.

Providers are required to self-study the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th Edition, and complete the online examination through Health Stream within 30 days before attending a Provider Course.

Instructor-learner contact is focused on interactive learning, immersive simulation, and constructive debriefing. The course consists of the Performance Skills Station, an Integrated Skills Station, and Simulation and Debriefing.

• The Performance Skills Station provides an opportunity to practice or review technical hands-on resuscitation skills with instructor assistance.

• The Integrated Skills Station allows the instructor to facilitate more than one scenario and evaluate the learner's readiness for simulation and debriefing. The instructor will not coach, assist, or interrupt during a scenario.

• Simulation and Debriefing is now a required component of an NRP course. It provides team members with a safe setting in which to integrate cognitive and technical skills and focus on team communication and patient safety.

While this course does not guarantee proficiency during an actual resuscitation, it lays the foundation of knowledge, technical skills, and teamwork and communication skills that enable participants to continue development of neonatal resuscitation skills.

Successful completion earns the participant a same day Neonatal Resuscitation Provider (NRP) Provider Card.

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) provider status and should be renewed every 2 years, before the day of the month that it expires. Your provider card is not valid until the end of the month, unless you took the hands on skills session on the last day of the month. For example: If you took the class on December 15, 2017 then your provider card will expire on December 15, 2019 not on the last day of December.

The exam may be taken in sections and restarted at a later date. All of your information will be saved.

Do not stop in the middle of a single testing lesson. Write down your login information in case it is several days between logins.

This test covers the material in the 7th Edition Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation.

The test is not difficult for learners who focus on each lesson's Key Points and know the correct answers to each lesson's review section (practice test). Most new learners require several hours of study time.

You may not agree with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal Resuscitation Provider (NRP) approach to every clinical scenario. We will allow discussion time at the course for these differences in opinion.

Once you complete the final required lesson, the examination is considered complete, and you will not have the opportunity to test on additional lessons.

Before you can print your certificate you must complete the evaluation.

The average time to complete the full examination is 95 minutes. The online test is arranged by lesson, in the same order as in the textbook.

The computer scores each lesson as you submit answers. You may stop testing after a lesson, and resume testing later.

If you do not finish testing or cannot pass the test prior to the course start time, you may practice hands-on skills at the course with other learners, but you will not receive your American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal Resuscitation Provider (NRP) provider status on this course day.

The registration for online examination will ask if you have designated an American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal

Resuscitation Provider (NRP) instructor for the in -person components of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal Resuscitation Provider (NRP) Provider Course. The answer is YES. You do not need to name the instructor, however it is Catherine Brinkley RN.

After completing the examination, you will receive online examination verification. Bring this with you to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal Resuscitation Provider (NRP) course and give it to the instructor.

If printing is an issue, you may take a picture of it with your phone and text it to me at (719) 551-1222 or on course day you can log in and use my printer. The certificate will also have your CEUs on it so it's important to get it printed eventually.
