About this Quick Guide

Your organization has chosen to make the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) NRP™ Online Examination, 6th Edition available to you via HealthStream. This Quick Guide will walk you through the steps you must take to access the exam.

Note: Throughout this document, the word student is used to denote a HealthStream end user.

Important Things to Know Before You Begin:

Please read this section before beginning the exam.

1. Lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9 are required by the AAP; these lessons must be passed in order to complete the exam.

a. Your facility/employer may require you to pass all required lessons plus additional assigned lessons as determined by hospital policy.

b. Though you can access the non-required lessons, once all five required lessons (lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9) are passed, the exam is considered complete and optional lessons can no longer be accessed. If you wish to access the non-required lessons, you should do so before completing all required lessons.

2. Within the required lessons (lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9), you are allowed one failure of each lesson. If you fail any one lesson a second time, you will have failed the entire NRP exam and will be required to purchase and complete another exam. The internal policy at your facility determines how this second exam is paid for and accessed.

3. Once the exam is passed, you have 30 days to take their NRP live course.

a. If you do not complete the NRP Provider course within 30 days of completing the online exam, the online exam becomes invalid. The exam fee is not refundable. You will need to purchase and complete another exam.

b. The 30 days start on the day you complete the exam.

NRP Neonatal Resuscitation Program Exam Rules and Policies

Please read this section before beginning the exam.

NRP Neonatal Resuscitation Provider Education Process Completion of the Lessons

The NRPTM Online Examination, 6th Edition is comprised of nine lessons.

• Lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9 are required; these lessons must be passed in order to complete the exam.

• Your facility/employer may require you to pass all required lessons plus additional assigned lessons as determined by hospital policy.

• Each required lesson (1 through 4 and 9) must be passed with a score of 80% or greater. Any optional lessons must also be passed with a score of 80% or greater.

• Lessons are not timed. However, once you begin and sign into the overall exam for the first time, you must then complete the required lessons within 14 days, and you have 30 days to take the NRP instructor-led live course after completion.



Completion of the Exam:

The exam is passed when all five required lessons (lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9) are passed.

• Once the exam is passed, you have 30 days to take the NRP instructor-led live course.

• If you do not complete the NRP live course within 30 days of completing the online exam, the online exam becomes invalid. The exam fee is not refundable. You will need to purchase and complete another exam.

• You are allowed one failure of each required lesson (lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9). If you fail any one required lesson a second time, you will have failed the entire NRP exam and will be required to purchase and complete another exam. The internal policy at your facility determines how this second exam is paid for and accessed.

Definitions:

• Exam:

The complete NRP 6th edition examination, consisting of 9 lessons.



• Required Lessons:

Lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9 are required by the AAP.



• Other Lessons:

Lessons 5 through 8 are optional according to the AAP. However, your facility/employer may require you to complete these sections.



• Lessons are passed with a score of 80% or higher.



Exam Navigation

• Though you can access the non-required lessons, once all five required lessons (lessons 1 through 4 and lesson 9) are passed, the exam is considered complete and optional lessons can no longer be accessed. If you wish to access the non-required lessons, you should do so before completing all required lessons.

• It is not required that you complete all lessons in order. However, you may wish to complete lessons sequentially so that the exam is not closed until you complete lesson 9. Always leave lesson 9 until the end and you will be able to gain access to the optional lessons.

• You may skip questions within a lesson and come back to them. You may also change answers on any question before the lesson is submitted. Click the Submit button to submit the final answers for scoring.

• If you pass a lesson, you are able to see and print the questions that were answered incorrectly. You must print at the time that the option is presented, as you will not be able to re-enter the lesson to print later.

• If your hospital policy allows, you can take the course from any Internet-connected computer. Refer to your organization’s policies for more information.
