Canadian recommendations and adapted documents

7th edition

  • Become an NRP Provider
  • Order NRP materials
  • Registration and re-registration guidelines (updated on February 7, 2017)
  • Competency: The NRP is an educational program designed to teach individuals and teams who may be required to resuscitate newborn babies. Completion of an NRP course does not mean that an individual is competent to perform the skills of neonatal resuscitation.
  • Maintaining Provider status: With the introduction of the 6thedition guidelines, there is no longer differentiation between a NRP Provider and NRP Renewal course. To maintain current status, Providers need to attend a Provider course within 24 months of the previous NRP course. Content will be tailored to meet the learners’ needs. Note: Renewal of status may occur more frequently as determined by the individual’s professional association or facility.
  • Replace a Provider card: Due to a change in our database, if your course was before January 30, 2015, you can contact CPS staff for a letter confirming your course completion. If your course was on/after February 1, 2015, you can access your card online by logging onto the Neonatal Life Support database, using your six-digit ID and password.
  • Finding courses: Your provincial or regional NRP Steering Committee Liaison is the best information source for NRP courses in your area. They can advise you on upcoming courses, or they can direct you to local institutions that run them on a regular basis.
