    Is this a re-cert or 1st time?

    And, have you gotten the new book yet?

    The American Academy of Pediatric's NRP website is located at the following URL:

    Using either the "Provider Resources" or "Course Materials and Essentials" links located at the left of the page, information is available regarding posted upcoming courses and course materials.

    In addition, you might consider contacting the nursing educators in either OB, mother/baby, or NICU at hospitals in your area regarding classes they might be planning but which have not been posted at the NRP website.

    Hope you find this helpful

    You can get the book on Amazon:

    This link is for the latest edition-2006.

    I'm getting mine renewed this coming wk, but it's not for 1st time certifiers.

    You might try calling the American Heart Ass'n to see if they know who's having a class. Count on it taking 8 hrs the 1st time. The more familiar you are w/the material, the faster it will go.

    the absolute BEST NRP (and I have been to classes) is the nurse that teaches at the company is called HEART. She was waayyy better than the other one. nursesed seemed like she just wanted us to be done. HEART wanted us to have all the information we needed to do our job, but delivered it in a profesional and speedy manner.
