Global NRP

Since the inception of the Neonatal Resuscitation ProgramĀ® in 1987, it has grown to become an internationally renowned educational program. The course has been taught in over 130 countries, and course materials have been translated into at least 24 different languages.

Appropriate health care organizations worldwide are encouraged to develop a structure for implementing the NRP that will address educational needs unique to the country. This could include recognizing instructors, conducting training courses, awarding course completion cards, and instituting a mechanism for tracking the number of people trained.

When the course is conducted outside the US, the AAP does not grant CME credit nor issue course completion cards. However, NRP Instructors can maintain their instructor status by conducting courses internationally. If that is the case, they need to submit course rosters to satisfy their instructor requirements.

International activity that is voluntarily reported to the AAP is noted and may be provided to NRP instructors wishing to share experiences. Life Support staff are often contacted by individuals interested in starting NRP education internationally, particularly in developing countries, and we welcome the opportunity to provide whatever networking information we have available. In resource-limited areas, it may be appropriate to use the Helping Babies Breathe curriculum.
