Neonatal Resuscitation Program

Taking a NRP Class

Newborn infants are among the most vulnerable patients medical professionals will ever treat. Their needs are highly specific, both in terms of physiology and likely medical events. At the neonatal stage, any crisis must be met with immediate and appropriate attention to prevent serious harm or death. The neonatal resuscitation program, co-administered by the American Association of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association, provides rigorous training for healthcare professionals who may be in a position to save a baby’s life in the event of an emergency. Given its critical implications, certification is required for all Labor and Delivery personnel – from nurses to lactation consultants – as well as paramedics or emergency medical technicians who may have occasion to find an ailing infant on the scene.

What You Learn


If you’re a healthcare professional or you’re in training to become one, NRP certification is either mandatory or advantageous to your career. At Heart Life CPR, we offer industry-leading NRP classes to all those who are qualified to take them in the Tri State area of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Although part of the curriculum is handled online, a mandatory skills test must be administered on site at one of our locations to complete the program and achieve NRP certification. Our blended-learning NRP class is approved by the American Association of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association, giving you the full spectrum of skills and knowledge you will require to treat a neonatal medical event.

Currently in the NRP seventh edition textbook, the neonatal resuscitation program represents the highest standard in emergency care for newborns, relying on a broad-based body of empirical research and practice to arrive at a standard protocol. Adherence to its guidelines can mean the difference between life and death, and so its adoption by medical professionals must be administered as rigorously as possible.

Our NRP certification program is taught by neonatal intensive care specialists with direct current experience in their field. All resources employed are the best available, including an emphasis on advanced equipment for the skills test that completes the training. Medical professionals can be confident that the training they receive at Heart Life CPR is at the highest level, and that they will acquire all skills necessary to emergency neonatal care by the time they receive NRP certification.
