The American Academy of Pediatrics encourages hospitals with obstetrical or neonatal services to implement the Neonatal Resuscitation Program.

Requirements to become an NRP instructor

  • NRP Provider Card
  • Physician, registered nurse, nurse practitioner, respiratory care practitioner, or physician assistant with experience in delivery-room care of newborns
  • Current maternal-child educational or clinical responsibility in a hospital setting
  • Ongoing delivery room experience (recommended)

You can now complete instructor classes through AAP online. The course requires you to co-teach two classes with a NRP mentor after self-study, and complete the two student/provider exams, the instructor exam, and the e-simulation cases. We can provide mentorship opportunities and help design and implement your NRP program at your institution.

Contact Mary Lee Lemley for more information.
