AHA Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

AAP NRP is the required certification for neonatal resuscitation to healthcare providers.

Recommended for: Labor & delivery nurses, NICU nurses, postpartum nurses, respiratory therapists, and all healthcare providers involved in the delivery of newborns, care for critically-ill infants, and the postpartum care of mother and baby. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that healthcare providers in the emergency department consider the NRP certification in case of unexpected deliveries.

The NRP renewal/certification process consists of two parts:

  1. The 7th Edition Provider Exam (Found online at www.aap.org/nrp)
  2. Instructor-led skills demonstration

Choose a date for your NRP skills

When you sign up, we will send you a study guide to help you complete the online exam. The exam must be completed prior to your scheduled skills appointment. We offer NRP skills weekly in Orange County and San Diego. Additionally, you can complete your NRP skills on the same day as any BLS, ACLS, or PALS class.

How to take the online NRP exam:

-Go to www.aap.org/nrp and click on “NRP LMS Login”. Create an account, or log-in using an existing account.

-In the course catalog, look for “NRP 7th Edition Provider Exam”

-You will be prompted to create a profile through Healthstream, then you will be prompted to input your payment information. The NRP exam costs $35.00 which is paid directly to the AAP. Once the registration process is complete, the exam will become available to you.

-The online exam consists of two multiple-choice sections and four e-simulation cases. The exam is not timed, and you have unlimited attempts to complete the exam. Your progress will be saved in your profile, so you may log-out and log back in to continue the exam if needed. Remember your username and password!


Please note: If you complete the online exam through your hospital or workplace, you may be unable to complete your skills with us. This is because the Healthstream system used by many hospitals restricts students from registering for skills sessions outside of their facility. 

To ensure that everything goes smoothly, it is best to create your own username and password, and purchase the exam on your own. If you choose to go through your facility, you may have to complete the skills session at your facility as well.
