I don't have access to the current course materials, but I am certain that the NRP program, developed by the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics addresses this.
The following site may be helpful:
Those newly born infants who do not require resuscitation can generally be identified by a rapid assessment of the following 4 characteristics:
Was the infant born after a full-term gestation?
Is the amniotic fluid clear of meconium and evidence of infection?
Is the infant breathing or crying?
Does the infant have good muscle tone?
If the answer to all 4 of these questions is "yes," the infant does not need resuscitation and should not be separated from the mother. The infant can be dried, placed directly on the mother's chest, and covered with dry linen to maintain temperature. Observation of breathing, activity, and color should be ongoing.
(No mention of routine suctioning or any routine measure to clear the airway of an apparently healthy, breathing or crying newborn.)
