After successfully completing the BLS course, students should be able to:

  • describe the importance of high-quality CPR and its impact on survival
  • describe all the steps of the Chain of Survival and apply the BLS concepts of the Chain of Survival
  • recognize the signs of someone needing CPR
  • perform high-quality CPR on adults, children, and infants
  • describe the importance of early AED use and demonstrate using one

 This NRP Skills Check Session  is for those who have already completed the online portion from the American Academy of Pediatrics. See AAP weblink below. 

Update June, 2016: You may use either the 6th Edition or 7th Edition book. Be sure to purchase the corresponding edition exam.

As of January 2017, only 7th edition will be available.

The NRP course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program™ is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation.  Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation.  Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.

After studying the NRP textbook, learners take the online exam via HealthStream.  Upon successful exam completion, learners attend a course for skills training, simulation, and debriefing

IT IS REQUIRED THAT YOU TAKE THE ONLINE EXAM PRIOR TO THIS CLASS. YOU MUST ALSO BRING THE EXAM VERIFICATION FORM ON THE DAY OF CLASS.
