NRP Course Description
This course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program™ is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. Completion of the program 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.
A comprehensive instructional textbook, which includes an interactive multi-media DVD-ROM, forms the basic educational component of the program and is available for purchase from the AAP Online Bookstore. For detailed information on ordering NRP materials, please contact Publications at 888/227-1770
The Neonatal Resuscitation ProgramTM (NRP) is proud to present iNRP, an innovative mobile Web application for iPhone, Android and other Smartphones! iNRP features the updated full-color algorithm for neonatal resuscitation, based upon the 2010 ILCOR guidelines. The app includes an animated metronome to help healthcare professionals recognize and practice the optimum rate for delivering ventilations, and ventilations with compressions.

What are the 6th Edition Provider Course components?
Providers are required to self-study the NRP Textbook, and complete the online examination through HealthStream 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
