The Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS) Provider Course is designed to increase the pediatric healthcare provider’s knowledge and skills necessary to assess early signs of respiratory failure and shock, provide early emergent interventions and alert the appropriate Advanced Life Support (ALS) response team.
PEARS is for healthcare providers such as medical and surgical nurses, school nurses, homecare nurses, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and any other healthcare provider who infrequently sees critically ill infants and children.
The one-day PEARS Provider course is for healthcare providers taking the PEARS course for the first time, or for those whose PEARS Provider status has expired.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) Course is an education program of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Heart Association (AHA) that teaches an evidence-based approach to newborn care. The course introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation by utilizing a blended learning approach that includes online testing, online case-based simulations and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication and teamwork skills.
The High-Risk NRP Course provides more details and offers the opportunity to practice advanced skills, including intubation, medications and umbilical vein catheterization. In addition, this course also offers simulation of complex situations such as prematurity and congenital anomalies.

For first-time PALS certification or renewal. HeartCode is an appropriate alternative for experienced pediatric healthcare providers who are comfortable with computer simulation, and may have class-time limitations. As a first-time PALS course, it is a good option for experienced providers practicing PALS in their daily work. Part 1 provides online self-paced learning (average 4–8 hours), interactive case simulation and a written exam. In the half-day Part 2, participants practice and test team leader and team member skills using case scenarios. Completion of Part 1 is required for participation in Part 2.
