    NRP High Risk Provider Course

    Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an education program of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association that teaches concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation. Our learners study the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th Edition, 2016 and pass the online training prior to attending any NRP course. This allows most of the scheduled course time to be used for hands-on practice and simulation. Emphasis is placed on increasing self-efficacy, managing the unexpected and supporting the efforts and contributions of each team member.

    The High-Risk NRP course provides more details and offers opportunity to practice advanced skills including intubation, medications and umbilical vein catheterization. In addition, the High-Risk NRP course offers simulation of complex situations like prematurity and congenital anomalies.

    Date: Wednesday Oct. 12, 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
