COURSE DESCRIPTION (as described by the American Heart Association):

This course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.

Providers are required to self-study the NRP Textbook, and complete the online examination through HealthStream within 30 days before attending a Integrated Skills Station/Megacode.

Instructor-learner contact is focused on interactive learning, immersive simulation, and constructive debriefing. The course consists of the Performance Skills Station, an Integrated Skills Station, and Simulation and Debriefing.

  • The Performance Skills Station provides an opportunity to practice or review technical hands-on resuscitation skills with instructor assistance.
  • The Integrated Skills Station allows the instructor to facilitate more than one scenario and evaluate the learner’s readiness for simulation and debriefing.  The instructor will not coach, assist, or interrupt during a scenario.
  • Simulation and Debriefing is now a required component of an NRP course. It provides team members with a safe setting in which to integrate cognitive and technical skills and focus on team communication and patient safety
