Neonatal Resuscitation Program
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an educational program jointly sponsored with the American Heart Association (AHA).
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program® (NRP®) 7th Edition course 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.
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.
