Neonatal Care from NRP to S.T.A.B.L.E.
Pro Ed is dedicated to providing the healthcare professional the tools needed to resuscitate and stabilize the newborn infant.
NRP courses are designed to be low-stress while providing a unique and fun way to learn and apply NRP skills in various scenarios.
S.T.A.B.L.E. trains the provider in skills and techniques to stabilize the newborn for care within the unit or in anticipation of transport for higher level of care. Training teaches the provider to look at the immediate concerns as well as to anticipate complications.

New NRP guidelines will be available after April 30th. The 7th Edition guidelines and implementation will be required by January 1, 2017.
With the 7th Edition NRP program, the certification process will be changing. Healthstream has been revised to incorporate an eSim element into the testing process. You will need to verify that your browser is the newest versions of either Chrome or Internet Explorer prior to testing.
There are now 11 provider lessons that will be required by all learners to complete to achieve NRP Provider status. As Maternal Child departments become family focused with staff cross-training to assist in each department, there is an increased expectation that NRP providers may be called to participate in a delivery or in an emergency. This new requirement is to increase patient safety and to improve patient outcomes.
The following link provides a summation of the new changes coming with the 7th Edition NRP program: http://www2.aap.org/nrp/docs/IU/2015_FallWinter_iu.pdf
I need to renew my NRP card or have an expired card
Pro Ed NRP instructors will begin testing using the 7th Edition materials beginning June 1, 2016. Although the 6th Edition guidelines and testing will be available until December 31, 2016, in anticipation of the new guidelines and to best disseminate the new information, Pro Ed will switch to the 7th Edition guidelines for all classes once the new materials are available.
NRP is building a new database that will require students to pre-register for courses through the AAP/NRP website. A link will be provided when that system becomes available. More details to come regarding the new registration process.
Until then, please contact us to arrange skills testing once you have completed the online testing at http://www2.aap.org/nrp/ and using the NRP Online Exam Link. If your hospital pays for the exam through its own Healthstream link, please print the final completion certification and contact us for skills testing.
If you have a group of 3-5 people testing at the same time, a special course can be arranged for your group. Contact us for more details.
I want to become a NRP Instructor
New candidates must apply through AAP/ NRP for approval to become an instructor. Once approved, the candidate will have to complete the Healthstream NRP Instructor Candidate Course that includes the eSimulation and online examination. The completion certificate will be taken to a NRP Instructor Mentor (formally NRP Regional Trainer) to complete 2 co-taught NRP courses. If the candidate can complete the above requirements, the NRP Instructor Mentor will post the completed courses with AAP and the NRP steering committee and the candidate will be approved as a NRP Hospital Based Instructor.
As you can see the process is quite involved. The candidate will need to coordinate 2 NRP provider courses (first time or renewal) with the Mentor prior to beginning the process. Since teaching NRP is not as simple as just pulling out equipment and skills testing, Pro Ed will still be holding courses on how to be an NRP Instructor then arrangements can be made for our NRP Instructor Mentor to proctor your courses. Please contact us with your information to begin.
S.T.A.B.L.E. is celebrating 20 years of providing training to healthcare professionals involved in the stabilization and transportation of neonates.

(Sugar/Safe Care, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work & Emotional support), the program provides a unique and thorough method for evaluating and stabilizing neonates.
Neonatal management is a team effort and all healthcare professionals involved in neonatal care are encouraged to participate. Whether you are using the skills to stabilize a neonate in your unit or preparing for transport to higher level of care, the techniques you learn in this program can make a real difference to your patient’s ability to survive and thrive.
Check the calendar for upcoming courses in the Inland Empire or arrange for a course to be held at your facility.
If you have a group of 3-6 participants, please contact us to arrange a small group course that can be tailored to your knowledge and skills level. Please indicate in the message if the needed course is level 1 (basic), level 2 (intermediate) or level 3 (intensive care) and if the course is first time versus a renewal.
