SureFire CPR in Southern California is a leader for providing Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) certifications for hospital staff and professional healthcare workers. Through our training program, all NRP guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics are met to ensure the proper resuscitation steps for newborns and infants are followed. While many have questions regarding the difference between standard CPR and the resuscitation of infants, our NRP training course focuses on addressing your questions while providing the basics to infant resuscitation.
What is NRP?
NRP is based on the program that was established by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care for newborn infants. Our courses abide by the NRP guidelines set in place by this program to provide hospital staff and healthcare providers with the necessary life-saving skills needed to resuscitate newborns and infants.
Our NRP course covers neonatal resuscitation equipment, initial assessments, and positive pressure ventilation. In addition, students learn the skills needed to perform neonatal CPR and intubation, as well as medication dosing and administration for a complete integration of neonatal skills.
How Can I Become NRP Certified?
The NRP certification course is a blended learning course: the didactic portion is done through an online module system created and administered by the American Academy of Pediatrics and then the hands-on skills and testing portion is done at our facility at SureFire CPR.
The online portion of the course is made up of 9 modules with a test at the end of each module. Once this portion is complete, you can print out your completion certificate and sign up for the hands-on skills session at SureFire CPR. The hands-on skills session lasts approximately 2 to 2.5 hours and is made up of several stations where you will get to learn about the different equipment, practice using the equipment, and then be tested on what you have learned. SureFire CPR makes this hands-on skills session interactive and fun and makes sure you leave feeling confident in your skills.
Once you complete the skills session, you will receive your NRP certification card through the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association.
SureFire CPR maintains the highest standards for training for neonatal resuscitation; therefore, we remain current and abide by all NRP guidelines and procedures. Through our flexible and comprehensive training, healthcare professionals will receive their NRP certification quickly and easily to respond during neonatal emergencies.
