Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

an NRP in Austere environments* (see calendar below to register)

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is a course jointly sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association.  The AAP describes it this way:  "The course conveys an evidence-based approach to care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for the healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery."

* Note: Austere environments are defined as EMS, Emergency Departments, and other Non-Delivery room settings

NRP has two parts:  Part 1 (online) and the Instructor-led Event (in-person skills session).

For the Part 1, which is an online module that includes regular testing and eSim cases:

  • We want you to complete it within 60 days of your Instructor-led Event
  • Please do not sign up for the Part 1 on your own.  You risk signing up for a module that is not approved by the AAP (there are card mills out there) and it's a lot more work for everyone.  

For the Instructor-led Event:

  • Expect to do hands-on skills stations, and then team-based megacode simulations with a manikin infant.
  • Please do not bring your children to these sessions.  We love kids, but it is hard to stay focused on class material when a small child is in the room.
  • You must be at least 18 years old to attend our Instructor-led Events.

Once you complete the Instructor-led Event, you will fill out your Part 2 evaluation in HealthStream (same place as your Part 1), and then your card should be available in the Profile->Resuscitation Cards section.

Instructor-led Events are each month, the third Monday from 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM, the third Monday (again) from 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM, and the third Thursday from 3:30 PM - 7:00 PM.  In the rare instance that a session does not have 3 participants registered by the latest sign-up date, we may cancel the session.  Sessions will automatically close one week before the session.

Please contact Dusty Lynn  at DLynnRN@virginia.edu, or the Life Support Learning Center (434) 924-1765 if you are registering a group of more than 4 participants.


See our course calendar to choose a date/time and register for a class:


All participants must register here.  You cannot register for our class in HealthStream.

UVa staff: Your registration must include the name of the department paying for your course.  Once you complete your registration, LSLC will sign you up for the Part 1 and the Instructor-led Event that you want to attend.  You will need to obtain a textbook from your department or online (further details in an email you will receive).
