Upcoming NRP Provider Course in Regina

Saturday November 4, 2017 – Regina General Hospital, Regina, SK

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) provides health care professionals with the knowledge and skills of neonatal resuscitation.  Participants complete an on-line exam prior to the course.  The in-person component of the course focuses on the application of knowledge to clinical practice through skills checks, integrated skills practice and case based learning.  The use of simulation and debriefing are prominent in building a team-based approach.

Who can become a Provider?
Anyone who is required to participate in any part of neonatal resuscitation within their scope of practice may apply to take an NRP course.  The individual should be a licensed or regulated health professional (or student) such as physician, nurse, midwife, respiratory therapist or paramedic.
