About NRP

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program is an educational program that introduces the concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation.

In Canada, NRP is administered by the Canadian Paediatric Society and is designed to teach individuals and teams who may be required to resuscitate newborn babies. NRP course content is evidence-based and is delivered across Canada in both English and French.

Completion of an NRP course does not mean that an individual is competent to perform neonatal resuscitation.

Read more about the history of NRP in The Early History and Basic Concepts of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program from the October 1997 AAP Instructor Update Newsletter.
