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 Low-Risk NRP Course is designed for providers who specialize in low-risk deliveries or who are new to the birth environment. This course is designed to provide more opportunity to practice individual skills and moving through the NRP Resuscitation Algorithm, as well as focusing on teamwork and communication.
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.
