Where can I get my NRP certification?

Hello, I'm a new grad currently trying to get in to Postpartum nursing/Perinatal. It's been tough to see any jobs available for new nurses in the midst of the pandemic and to find an accredited NRP program thats solely online. Where can I get my NRP? Are the online classes with no in person contact accredited? Any information is helpful! Thank you in advance.

Also, I hear that once hired, most employers pay for or allow a certain time to obtain the necessary certifications. I have some preceptorship experience in the NICU, so I'm hoping it makes some sense to obtain my NRP before getting a job.

There are no legit online NRP courses. All require an in-person mega code. Your employer will put you through NRP after you're hired - no need to get it beforehand. Having it will not making you any more or less employable.
