Neonatal Resuscitation Program

While 90 percent of newborn deliveries are beautiful and uncomplicated, there are still some babies that need special assistance at delivery. The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) was created by the American Academy of Pediatrics in collaboration with American Heart Association to provide consistent, quality care specific to the needs of a newborn baby at the time of birth. NRP has been evolving and educating neonatal caregivers around the world since the 1980s.

All the doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists that care for infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care at Nebraska Medicine have been trained in the techniques of neonatal resuscitation. Many of those experts are also NRP instructors, educating other caregivers in the metropolitan area. You can be assured that your baby will receive the best care after delivery.
