How do I identify or justify the need for an NRP?

The NRP is designed for those who participate in neonatal resuscitation in the delivery room and newborn nursery. The NRP courses are offered in community hospitals by Hospital-based Instructors or are provided as a service to community hospitals by the Regional Outreach Education Program.

In many institutions the NRP is conducted to:

  • Improve the quality of neonatal resuscitation
  • Meet performance expectations or attain hospital privileges or credentialing for staff who attend births or care for newborns
  • Serve as a quality management strategy to improve the process and outcome of neonatal resuscitation
  • Meet regulatory agency requirements for evidence of an education program that supports competency-based practice of neonatal resuscitation

Although Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Pediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals (PEPP) courses are appropriate for those who participate in resuscitations outside the delivery room, the NRP also may be useful to pre-hospital providers who desire in-depth training specific to neonatal resuscitation.
