Interested in bringing Karen to your area? becoming a sponsor!

Karen travels around the US, and occasionally internationally, to offer her unique NRP workshop. Behind each workshop is an individual from the area that helps Karen with all aspects of the workshop: a sponsor.

As a sponsor, you will:

  • need a minimum of 20-25 registrants
  • provide housing and all transportation for Karen, while she’s in town (unless Karen is staying in a hotel and/or renting a car)

Before the workshop, you will:

  • set a workshop date with Karen
  • secure a workshop location
  • spread the word and advertise the workshop
  • accept and sign for the FedEx delivery of Karen’s equipment
    •  it is important to know that it takes 5 days (not including weekends) for her equipment to travel from one location to another via fedex plus a day for the  equipment to ship and 1 day for it to arrive. 
  • help to set up, the day before the workshop

The day of the workshop, you will:

  • arrive early to help finish setup
  • help with breakdown
  • clean the workshop space
  • drop off Karen’s equipment at FedEx, immediately after the class

International Workshops

Karen absolutely loves bringing her workshop to new locations, including internationally. Besides teaching throughout the continental US, Karen has taught in Canada, Brazil, Israel and Hawaii.

Bringing Karen’s workshop internationally, or outside the continental US, takes a little more planning. These workshops also cost more to put on, due to travel and equipment transportation costs.

In addition to the details found in the Sponsor Contract the following should be considered:

  • Typically, a minimum of 25-30 people must register, in order for Karen to teach the class. (2-6 of registrants cancel the day of the workshop, due to births or illness.)
  • Karen must fly with all her equipment (6 large suitcases), in addition to her personal belongings. (Typically the first bag is free, but additional suitcases are $150 each, keep in mind payment is needed both way.)
  • The additional costs are added into the workshop fee, paid per registered person.
  • For international workshops a flat fee can be negotiated to include travel and expenses.

The American Academy of Pediatrics/Neonatal Resuscitation Program (AAP/NRP) does not offer their card to any classes taught off of US soil. Any neonatal resuscitation workshop taught by Karen outside the US will receive a certificate of completion from Integrative Resuscitation of the Newborn.
