    NRP Low-Risk Provider Course

    Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an education program of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Heart Association (AHA) that teaches concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation. Our learners study the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th Edition, 2016 (or review the e-book), and pass the online training (including both sections of the exam and the eSim cases) 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 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 algorithm, as well as focusing on teamwork and communication.

    Date: Monday May 8, 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
    Location: Learning and Simulation Center, Seattle Children's Hospital, 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle WA 98105
