Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) 

8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

This course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn.  The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.  The neonatal Resuscitation Program is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation.  Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation.  Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.
