Effective January 1, 2012, the Neonatal Resuscitation Program requires that the HealthStream NRP online exam be completed within 30 days prior to the NRP Course. Prior to the onlne exam, the textbook Neonatal Resuscitation, 6th Edition must be studied. (in addition, use of the DVD thain the back of the textbook is highly recommended for a more interactive learning experience.) You may find it helpful to visit www.aap.org/nrp and read the resources under the Online Examination tab.
If unavailable from your employer, the textbook can be ordered directly from the American Academy of Pediatrics bookstore by visiting the AAP website: www.aap.org/nrp/bookstore.html or by calling 1-888-227-1770. It is also available as an eBook at www.aapbooks.org.
We provide the required hands-on interactive course. You successfully pass the course after you:
- Provide your certificate verifying that you passed the lessons you are required to complete. Basic (Lessons 1-4 and 9) or Lessons 1-9.
- 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.

The AAP encourages hospitals to develop a program in order to implement the Neonatal Resuscitation Program in every hospital with obstetrical and/or neonatal services. Hospital-based instructors can be physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists or physician assistants. An instructor manual is available from the American Academy of Pediatrics Bookstore.
If you are interested in developing this program in your hospital or increasing your instructor pool, this course can train instructors. Contact Cheryl Major.
