aap nrp 8th edition - advanced - provider training

Baby's Breath is a comprehensive training program for all birth workers to learn how to care for newborns within the midwifery model of care in the community setting.   AAP's Hospital-Based NRP Provider training is not required to complete Baby's Breath.  However, some state licenses, national certifications, and midwifery schools require AAP's hospital-based NRP training to complete their programs or to maintain licensure/certification.  Michele is an AAP NRP Instructor-Mentor; therefore, the workshop also satisfies Part 2 of the AAP's NRP Provider Course Instructor-Led Event.   If you need your NRP card from AAP (AAP 8th Edition Advanced NRP Provider Training), you must register with AAP - in addition to Baby's Breath - and complete their online training  - ideally before attending the Baby's Breath Workshop (Instructor-Led event).  Please select your Baby's Breath workshop date and register on this site, then follow the steps below to register for AAP's course.   

**Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about this process.
