NRP for Out-of-Hospital Providers

8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

For years, birth centers have struggled to obtain quality Neonatal Resuscitation Program Provider training, and when they've been able to obtain it, the training has usually been hospital-based.  Julie, Ashton, and Olga are all NRP instructors with a passion for helping out-of-hospital staff to learn NRP in a birth center setting.  This will be an all day course with skills stations that focus on repeated practice of initial steps, ventilation, and compressions until muscle memory is well-developed for these skills.  Join them at the Birth Institute for this initial offering, or contact us to learn how you can bring the team to your site in 2019.  Julie Moon, CNM; Ashton Osborne, RN; Olga Ryan, MS-NL, RN
