What is the same?
1. Minimum course requirement is Lessons 1 through 4 and Lesson 9. The NRP Provider
Card requires renewal every years. !our "acility may require more "requent renewal.
2. #ny $erson who wor%s with new&orns is eligi&le to ta%e an NRP Provider course' however(
the course has little relevance "or a $erson who has never seen a healthy term new&orn at
3. #ll learners may study( $ractice and demonstrate all NRP s%ills i" desired( including
intu&ation and emergency um&ilical venous catheter $lacement. NRP does not certi"y or
ensure com$etence to $er"orm these s%ills in an actual resuscitation.
4. The recommended NRP instructor to learner ratio at a Provider course is 1 instructor) *+4
Programmatic Changes
1. Two new Per"ormance Chec%lists)

2. There is no more Renewal Course. ,veryone ta%es a Provider Course tailored to learners.
3. ,ach institution determines its own $olicy a&out what ha$$ens i" NRP $rovider status e/$ires.
4. The 0nline ,/amination is required "or the 1
edition. The -

o2ered as a hard co$y e/am or online e/am until 3ecem&er *1( 411. No more hard co$y
e/amination is availa&le a"ter 3ecem&er 411.
5. Provider Course includes little or no lecture( uses course time "or hands+on learning(
immersive simulations( and constructive de&rie5ngs.
1. The Per"ormance 6%ills 6tations are o$tional and used "or learning( review( and
2. The NRP online e/amination and 7ntegrated 6%ills 6tation 8similar to Megacode9 are
required and used "or evaluation.
3. The 6imulation and 3e&rie5ng com$onent is required and used to im$rove
teamwor% and communication.
6. Teamwor% and communication s%ills are :ust as im$ortant as cognitive and technical s%ills.
