About AAP NRP

The AAP Neonatal Resuscitation Program is a required certification for all healthcare providers who come into contact with newborns. The AAP NRP Skills course format requires learners to first study Neonatal Resuscitation material, then complete an online exam. After completing the AAP NRP exam, learners must then attend an interactive course that includes only a hands-on NRP skills test.

Transitioning from intrauterine to extra-uterine life is the single most dangerous event in a persons life. During this time, the human body goes through more physiologic adjustments than in any other stage of life. For the most part, babies usually transition without any problems. In fact, roughly 90% of babies transition smoothly into extra-uterine life, with little to no assistance required. However, some babies struggle to adjust, or don’t adjust at all; which is why for the remaining few percent Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP) may be necessary. Furthermore, due to the fact that there are a large number of births, the small percentage of infants requiring NRP may be substantial. While appropriate neonatal resuscitation is essential, the success of an optimal resuscitation can be one of the most gratifying experiences for healthcare providers. Lastly, the implications of not receiving help can be fatal, or associated with long-lasting problems.
