I want to verify if someone is a current NRP Provider or Instructor
In order to manage requests more efficiently, we have implemented a new system for processing third party verifications (e.g. providing verification of your instructor or provider status to another person, for example, an employer). We kindly request completion of the online verification request form. Life Support staff will respond to all requests on a weekly basis.
I would like more information about PCEP (Perinatal Continuing Education Program).
PCEP is administered by the University of Virginia Health System. For more information about PCEP, visit the Perinatal Continuing Education Program site. Perinatal Continuing Education Program
There is a course being offered entirely online, is this a valid NRP course?
The American Academy of Pediatrics has been advised that there are entities offering NRP "certification" or "verification" cards through online courses.
Please be advised that these entities are not affiliated, associated with, or connected to AAP and they have no authority from AAP or the American Heart Association to make this use of NRP or to issue cards.
The cards issued by these entities are not official AAP/AHA NRP Course Completion cards.
How can I get a response to a medical question?
Please send all medical inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Members of the NRP Steering Committee will review and provide a response.
