The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), co-sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Heart Association (AHA), has been developed to help provide health care practitioners with the knowledge and skills necessary for resuscitating infants at birth. The program format has been designed to be self instructional with class time open for discussion and hands-on testing. Successful completion of the online examination and eSim cases is required before attendance at class. This requires thorough studying and review of all course materials prior to class.
This course is designed for physicians, nurses, paramedical personnel, and other health care providers who have responsibilities for resuscitation and management of the neonatal patient. The AAP and AHA highly recommend someone skilled in all portions of NRP to be in attendance at each delivery.
