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.
