Event description


About the Program

Training in the Neonatal Resuscitation Program is a three-step process including:

(1) A self-directed learning component,

(2) Successful completion of an on-line knowledge exam, and

(3) Attendance at a day-long classroom session for hands-on skill development, practice, and testing.

Our NRP instructors are a combination of nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, and midwives with substantial newborn care experience.

During our NRP courses, participants learn and work together as members of a neonatal resuscitation team. All participants must learn and practice in the various roles of a neonatal resuscitation team.

To best meet the learning needs of our course participants, the Simulation and Outreach Program offers NRP courses according to a participant's experience level and current clinical role. Participants will be grouped into teams to maximize learning according to whether participants are New Providers/Student Providers or Current Clinical Providers.

Course Content:

- Covers Lessons 1-11

- Includes: principles of resuscitation, initial steps of resuscitation, use of resuscitation devices, chest compressions, endotracheal intubation, laryngeal mask airway insertion, umbilical venous cannulation, medication administration, special considerations, and resuscitation of preterm infants and ethics and care at the End of Life.

- Requires successful completion of a Basic or Advanced Integrated Skills Assessment (practical test) according to the participant's legal scope of practice.
