The NEONATAL RESUSCITATION PROGRAM TM (NRP)


The NEONATAL RESUSCITATION PROGRAM TM (NRP)
is a course designed to teach an evidenced –based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.

The NRP exam and skills evaluation are based on information obtained from the Neonatal Resuscitation Textbook 7th Edition. Prior to the NRP Instructor-Led Event, it is the student's responsibility to read the NRP 7th edition textbook and complete and successfully pass the 7th Edition on line provider curriculum on HealthStream. You can complete the NRP 7th edition on-line provider curriculum as earlier as 90 days prior to your NRP Instructor-Led Event. However, in order to attend the NRP Instructor-Led Event, you must bring written documentation that you have completed and successfully passed the NRP 7th Edition on-line provider curriculum. To access the NRP 7th edition on-line provider curriculum, Elliot employees will need to go to the HealthStream website to access the exam free of charge. Once you register for the course, you will be assigned the NRP 7th edition on-line provider curriculum in HealthStream. For Non-Ellot Hospital employees, there is a $100 non-refundable registration fee to attend the NRP Instructor-Led Event. Information on purchasing the NRP 7th edition textbook and the NRP 7th edition provider curriculum can be obtained from the American Academy of Pediatrics Website (www2.aap.org/nrp). In order to take the NRP 7th edition online provider curriculum, you will need to create a password under the HealthStream Learning Management System (LMS) on the AAP Website.

Following your successful completion of the NRP 7th edition provider curriculum, you will then be ready for the Instructor-Led Event. During the Instructor-Led Event, you will be expected to demonstrate a mastery of resuscitation skills in the Integrated Skills Station and participate in simulated resuscitation scenarios followed by a debriefing session.

If you are an Elliot employee, the NRP 7th edition textbook can be signed out on loan from the Neonatology Department and should be returned to the NRP instructor at the end of the course. Please contact Diane Sanchioni at 663-2692 if you have any questions. Her office is located in the NICU on the 5th Floor of the Elliot Hospital. Non-Elliot employees will need to purchase their own textbook from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
