BOOK & Testing INFORMATION

4. ONCE you RECEIVE EMAIL NOTIFICATION THAT THE CLASS IS GUARANTEED:
Once we've hit our minimum registration numbers, we'll send out an email notification letting you know that the class is guaranteed. Once guaranteed, travel arrangements can be made and the online exam can be completed.
DO NOT wait until the day before the workshop to take the online exam, it is a much longer process than with the 6th edition (6-10 hours!).

* The Neonatal Resuscitation Textbook 7th Edition Pg. xii states that Completion Does Not Imply Competence. “The Neonatal Resuscitation Program is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation. Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.”
