Program Overview

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is designed for medical, mid-level, nursing and emergency medical transport providers who care for newborns.  In the NRP Provider Course, the learner will be introduced to the basic concepts of neonatal resuscitation and learn how to evaluate and establish appropriate treatment interventions in the stabilization of the acutely ill neonate.

Learning Objectives

Completion of an NRP Provider Course does not imply competency in neonatal resuscitation.

Please Note:
All participants registered for the Provider Course must successfully complete the “NRP Online Evaluation” within 30 days before the course.  After completing the online exam, print out a “verification of completion” to present to your course instructor as evidence of successful completion of the exam. If you do not have the exam successfully completed prior to the course, you will not be allowed to participate. Upon registration you will be sent a link and login information to access the NRP online exam. If you do not pass the exam within the two attempts allowed, you will need to pay for subsequent attempts.
