NRP Skills Session

2 NRP-Certified female instructors conducting a CPR on a newborn baby while in a NRP skills session class

The AAP Neonatal Resuscitation Program is a required certification for all healthcare providers who come into contact with newborns.

The AAP NRP Skill Session course format requires learners to first study Neonatal Resuscitation material, and then complete an online exam.

During the NRP skill session, students have the opportunity to practice and demonstrate their proficiency in performing essential resuscitation techniques on newborns.

After completing the AAP NRP exam, learners must then attend an interactive course that includes only a hands-on NRP skills test.

CEH: 5 CE Hours Awarded

There are 2 parts to obtaining your NRP certification.

  • Part 1: Complete the Exam Certificate of Completion through online exam and course survey. Visit the NRP 8th Edition online exam to access the test.
  • Part 2: Attend an instructor-led NRP skills session by Elite Medical Training at one of our NRP Training locations.
