NRP Provider Course
The course focuses on hands-on learning of technical skills, integrated skills, simulation and constructive de-briefing so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skills in resuscitation.
This Neonatal Resuscitation Program class uses an evidence-based approach to teach newborn resuscitation to health care professionals, including physicians, registered nurses, physician assistants and respiratory care practitioners, who have no previous experience.
Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation.
This class is based on the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Health Association (AHA) International Guidelines for Emergency Cardiovascular Care of the Newborn.
