Neonatal Resuscitation Program

Book NRP

This four-hour course has been designed to teach and evaluate the evidence-based resuscitation skills of the newborn. Critical skills will be taught from preparing necessary equipment to airway, chest compressions, umbilical lines, medications, and special considerations. These skills will be evaluated during simulated deliveries followed by debriefings. The goal is for participants to develop optimal knowledge and resuscitation skills in accordance with current American Heart Association (AHA) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations.

Fees: $140 (Includes book and ONE online exam attempt)
