Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
ChildZCare offers an NRP provider course. The Neonatal Resuscitation Program materials are based on the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Heart Association (AHA Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care).

You the student need to read and study the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th Edition, complete the online written examination and E-sim (part 1) prior to the start of NRP instructor led event learning activities (part 2).

Provider Course Learning Activities (Part 2)

Performance Skills Stations are used for review and practice, and is where the learner gets help from an instructor until the skill can be performed smoothly and without instructor assistance. This practice continues until the instructor and learner agree that the learner can perform the skill correctly and smoothly and without coaching within the context of a short clinical scenario. (Prepares them for the Integrated Skills)

Integrated Skills Station is the final Performance Skills Station and is a required element for all Provider courses. The Integrated Skills Station is an opportunity for each provider to demonstrate the steps in the NRP flow diagram using the proper sequence, timing, and technique. This is an individual evaluation intended to assure that all learners understand the “what, when, and how” of the resuscitation skills. Unlike the other Performance Skills Stations, the instructor does not coach the learner or interrupt the demonstration.

Simulation (required) is an education methodology that uses visual, auditory, and tactile cues to replicate the essential components of a real situation. By simulating an actual resuscitation experience, learners can work through high-risk situations in a safe environment and then reflect on the experience and critically evaluate their actions. Unlike the Performance Skills Stations that focus on individual performance and correct technique, simulation activities focus on how individuals work together as a team. Rather than trying to achieve a “perfect” performance, teams are challenged with progressively difficult scenarios to identify weaknesses and learn from them. Simulation is most valuable when the learners are able to “suspend disbelief” and become fully immersed in the clinical scenario. Simulation-based training with debriefing allows learners to practice technical skills, critical thinking, and communication and teamwork in a safe environment.

Debriefing (required) is a facilitated interactive discussion about a prior series of events. Although the scenario itself is engaging and educational, the most important learning occurs during debriefing. The focus of the debriefing should be on teamwork and communication, not on individual technical skills. Debriefing is not feedback from the NRP instructor. It is a team-centered discussion where the participants themselves discern what went well during the scenario and what needs improvement. Debriefing is a critical component of the learning process.

S.T.A.B.L.E. Program
Each member of the health care team—nurses, physicians, therapists and assistants—must know what to do for the sick infant. Their care must be provided in a timely, efficient, anticipatory, and effective manner. This early transitional care affects not only the immediate health of the infant, but also the infant’s long-term outcome. ChildZCare offers S.T.A.B.L.E. Program training as it was developed to meet the educational needs of health care providers who must deliver this important stabilization care. S.T.A.B.L.E. education is critical to the mission to reduce infant mortality and morbidity and to improve the future health of children and their families.

S.T.A.B.L.E. is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention and recall of information, S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment and care modules in the program:
  • Sugar & Safe Care
  • Temperature
  • Airway
  • Blood pressure
  • Lab work, and
  • Emotional support
A seventh module, Quality Improvement stresses the professional responsibility of improving and evaluating care provided to sick infants.

This 2-day course includes case studies and skills stations.
