Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP)
This course is taught according to the 2010 guidelines established by the American & Canadian Paediatric Societies. The NRP Provider and Renewal courses are offered to all health care professionals involved in the care of the newborn. Our participants work in a variety of areas including OBS, ER, Pediatrics, NICU and PACU.
New 2012 Guideline Update Requirements:
The learner must prepare in advance by reviewing the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation 6th Edition and CD ROM and successfully completing the Canadian Paediatric Society online exam. The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) stipulates participants are required to successfully complete their online NRP examination within 30 days prior to the NRP course date.
Please note: If the online exam is not successfully completed OR it has been longer than 30 days since successfully completing the online exam, the registrant is not eligible for scenario testing to complete their NRP certificate. In either of these instances, the participant would be required to successfully repeat the online exam again in order to qualify for the scenario based testing. There is an extra fee associated with the NRP online exam that is not covered in ETA course fees.
Registrants for ETA’s NRP courses must provide proof of successful online NRP exam completion 7 days prior to the course start date otherwise they risk loosing eligibility for scenario testing since the NRP course may need to be rescheduled.
Small group, scenario-based learning is used in the hands on component of this program. Ample time is allotted for hands-on practice, questions and self reflection to assist the learner in becoming more familiar with the use of specialized equipment and applying NRP skills appropriately.
Participants are registered through the Canadian Paediatric Society once the written test and practical skill stations have been successfully completed.
