OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital offers a Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course designed to teach providers the technical and behavioral skills required for optimal management of newborns immediately following birth.

Five Steps to Certification:

  • STEP 1: Register for a course at least 4 weeks before expiration of current NRP certification.  Registration confirmation email will be sent with course date, time and location. See registration form below.
  • STEP 2: Complete Self-study using Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 6th Edition.  Earlier editions should not be used.
  • STEP 3: Complete Online examination BEFORE attending the course. Four weeks before the course, instructions on how to access the online exam will be sent by email.  Health Stream is the host of the examination.  We advise completing the exam at least 1 week before the course to allow ample time for exam completion in the event of technical difficulties.
  • STEP 4: Print and bring the Certificate of Completion  to the NRP course.
  • STEP 5: Attend and participate in an interactive simulation-based course.  Please wear your typical work attire (ie:scrubs).
