NRP – Neonatal Resuscitation Course

CAD$325 – Purchase required to enroll

Course Description:

  • Neonatal Resuscitation ProgramThe Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an educational program that introduces the concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation.
  • In Canada, NRP is administered by the Canadian Paediatric Society and is designed to teach individuals and teams that may be required to resuscitate newborn babies.
  • NRP course content is evidence-based and is delivered across Canada.
  • The purpose of NRP is to provide health care professionals with the knowledge and skills of neonatal resuscitation. Successful completion of the course does not guarantee that the learner is capable of resuscitation on actual newborns, but lays the foundation of knowledge and skills to build increasing resuscitation proficiency.
  • NRP will continue to advance the principles of adult learning, using new tools, such as simulation, debriefing, video recording and teamwork training in the classroom. Face to face and small group teaching will be optimized by making pre-reading and pre-testing a prerequisite.
  • Initial and renewal courses will be similar and based on the needs of learners.

Course Content:

  • The Provider course includes 9 post tests, 5 skills stations to demonstrate clinical performance and an all-intensive “Megacode” evaluation.
