Initial Provider or Renewal Course
Beginning Jan 1, 2017
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program allows the HealthStream NRP online exam to be completed within 90 days prior to attending the NRP Course instructor led event. Prior to the online exam, the textbook Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th Edition must be studied.
After the online exams, e-simulations will be required to be completed prior to coming to class. Also, with the initiation of NRP 7th edition, each learner will be required to review all 11 chapters and prove competence, but the online test will now only be in two parts. You may find it helpful to visit aap.org and read the resources under the Online Examination tab.
If books are unavailable from your employer, the textbook can be ordered directly from the American Academy of Pediatrics bookstore or by calling (888) 227-1770. You may also find a more cost effective option to buy or rent it as a textbook through Amazon.
We provide the required hands-on interactive part of the course. You will successfully pass the course and receive an e-card after you:
- Provide your certificate verifying that you passed the 2-part online exam and completed the e-simulation cases.
- Demonstrate the skills required within the context of a clinical scenario in correct sequence according to the NRP flow diagram, with correct timing and proper technique.
- Participate in simulation training and debriefing exercises.
