Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an educational program that introduces the concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation.
Visit Canadian Paediatric Society to learn more about neonatal resuscitation program.
NRP workshops with advanced mega code (lessons 1-11) are available at all our hospitals with maternity services.
Who is eligible?
- Fraser Health nurse practitioners
- Fraser Health physicians
- Fraser Health registered midwives
- Fraser Health respiratory therapists
- Fraser Health registered nurses working in perinatal units and neonatal intensive care units
Register for an NRP workshop
- Take the course at your local hospital because different resuscitative devices are used at each location.
- Sign up at least 3 months in advance to ensure that you are able to find a workshop that suits your needs.
- Register in only one workshop at a time (i.e. do not sign up for multiple workshops).
- Note: If you have not signed in to the new Learning Hub system yet you may need to choose the “Coming from CCRS?” option when registering
A fee is applicable for participants who are not directly employed by Fraser Health.
Payment may be made the day of the workshop and a receipt will be issued. Cash or cheque payments are accepted. All cheques are to be made payable to Fraser Health.
Prepare for an NRP workshop
- Study the 7th Edition Neonatal Resuscitation Program textbook (available for loan at all Fraser Health maternity units, NICUs and medical libraries).
- Write the NRP 7th Edition online exam. Before attending the workshop, you must complete the online exam. Read our NRP 7th Edition online exam guide carefully.
- Read the Perinatal Services BC: Provincial Perinatal Guidelines Standards for Neonatal Resuscitation. Fraser Health NRP workshops follow the PSBC guideline. Pay special attention to section 4 for the management of IPPV and MRSOPPA.
- Read the Fraser Health Delayed Cord Clamping Reference Algorithm (Required).
- Read the Fraser Health Delayed Cord Clamping Clinical Practice Guideline (Recommended).
Receive your NRP card
- If you have taken NRP before, you will have an NRP ID number which is your username to sign in to the NRP database. Within two weeks of completing your NRP workshop, you will be able to log in to the NRP database to find your card. If you do not know or remember your ID (username), visit the NRP database and click on "Reset/Forgot your password?"
- Within two weeks of successfully completing your first NRP workshop, you will receive an email from the Canadian Paediatric Society with information on how to log in and retrieve your card.
Didn’t receive your NRP card in your email? Log on and select “reset/forgot your password”. Remember to use the same email address that you provided to the NRP instructor. Contact the CPS NRP office for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.cps.ca.
Record of workshop completion
Within two weeks of your NRP workshop, you will have access to a record of completion for your workshop through your personal profile on The Learning Hub.
- Sign in to The Learning Hub.
- Select “Learning History” on the left side at the top.
- Find your NRP workshop and click on the “Certificate” button on the right side of the screen. You can print or save and send by email.
NRP is a required course and we're continually monitoring to make sure the workshops are available and accessible.
Here is what we need you to do to ensure that you are not using more spaces than what is fair and reasonable:
- Plan ahead and register for the workshop at your own site that best suits your needs, so that you can complete it prior to your NRP card expiring.
- Register for the NRP workshop that suits you best. You are not entitled to register for more than one NRP workshop and be on a waitlist for a workshop.
- If you have to cancel for some reason, please provide two weeks' notice so that those on the waitlist have time to prepare for the workshop.
- Ensure that the email you have listed on your Learning Hub profile is the one that you check most often.
- Watch your email for notice that you have been moved from the waitlist to a confirmed spot. This will mean monitoring your personal or work email that is listed on your Learning Hub profile right up to 48-hours prior to the course.
