It is designed for health care professionals involved in any aspect of neonatal resuscitation, including physicians, nurses, advanced practice nurses, nurse midwives, licensed midwives, respiratory care practitioners, and other health care professionals who provide direct care during neonatal resuscitation.

- Register for an Instructor-led Event, which includes:
- Performance and Integrated Skills
- 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.
- Simulation and Debriefing
- Simulation and debriefing provides a safe setting in which to integrate cognitive and technical skills, and focus on team communication and patient safety. The instructor will not coach, assist, or interrupt during a scenario.
- Complete the Instructor-led Event Evaluation
You must register for an NRP 7th edition Instructor-led Event before attending the event. You can either register yourself for events or you can be registered by an instructor or administrator.
Once you complete all steps, the instructor will approve your skills and you will be required to complete a course evaluation. Be sure to complete the evaluation in a timely manner to ensure an accurate expiration date on your provider eCard. You will then have access to your NRP Provider eCard on the Resuscitation Cards page under your Profile.
