The Neonatal Resuscitation Program® (NRP®) course conveys an evidence-based approach to the care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery. This course content delivers curricula for Essentials Providers, which is appropriate for everyone involved in the care of a newborn and who may be called upon to initiate resuscitation including positive pressure ventilation.
This is a three-part course that is open to all new, expired, or current NRP Provider Cardholders.
The first part of the course is a self-study of the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation (8th edition). Many students who work in labor and delivery, NICU, or in Neonatology will find that they are already very familiar with the NRP Guidelines and do not need to spend as much time in self-study. However, if this material is new or unfamiliar, the new 8th edition Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation is the most valuable resource to prepare for the online exam and the classroom portion of the course.
Part 1: Online Exam
Access codes are sold separately. Complete all the online components of the program, including the Online Learning Assessment (Adaptive eLearning) and the Advanced Exam (35 questions). These online components will assess and verify your foundational knowledge of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program Advanced Provider curriculum. In addition, before attending part two of the course, all students MUST complete part one. Students can purchase the NRP part two online access code during registration.
Part 2: Skills Evaluation (NRP Mega-Code)
Upon completion of the online activities, you will need to register for an ADVANCED instructor-led event that offers the opportunity to practice/review advanced resuscitation skills and participate in simulation/debriefing that focuses on critical leadership, communication, and teamwork skills. Passing all assignments is required for the issuance of an NRP Advanced Provider eCard.
