Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
The NRP course is designed to give the healthcare provider the basic knowledge to care for the neonatal patient in cardiac arrest and to manage resuscitation efforts in conditions that may lead to arrest. This course will provide the skills necessary to resuscitate a newborn and to work smoothly as a team with other healthcare professionals. The intended audience for this course includes pediatricians, emergency physicians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare professionals who may be involved in the first critical moments of a newborn infant's life. The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course format now requires learners to self-study the material from the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 6th edition, and take a mandatory online examination BEFORE attending their NRP course.
Once your online course request is confirmed by Cooper 's Life Support Training Center, you will be provided with a simple username and password for access to the online NRP examination. Students can ONLY take this online examination anytime during the 30 days BEFORE your scheduled NRP provider course. You must finish this online testing within 14 days of your Original online start date and you must bring proof of this completion to your scheduled course date in order to gain entry into the class.
Current American Heart Association Basic Life Support card. Copy of BLS Card must be uploaded to the site to complete registration.
$250 (Course is free to Cooper employees whose NRP completion card is current the day of the course date.)
Precourse information will be emailed to you upon receipt of your completed online course request. If you do not receive the email two days after submitting your request, please contact the Life Support Training Center at (856) 342-2009. It is suggested that all participants read the NRP Provider Manual. The manual is included for paying participants. Also available to help you prepare for this course is an Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) handbook available through the Life Support Training Center for an additional $30.00.
A non-refundable cancellation fee of $100.00 will be charged to Cooper employees who cancel 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the date of the course. A non-refundable 'no-show" fee of $175.00 will be charged to Cooper employees who do not show for the course. In addition, $75.00 will be deducted via payroll deduction due to lateness and the need to reschedule the course date.
For non-Cooper employees, there will be no refunds or transferring to another course date for cancellations made within 14 days of the course date. Cancellation for NRP courses must take place 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the date of the course for a tuition refund minus the cost of the provider manual.
