Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
PLEASE NOTE: Perinatal Services BC does not offer provider courses. Each health authority or individual hospitals have NRP instructors who offer NRP provider courses. Please contact the education department at the hospital or health authority in your area directly to find out when the next provider course is, as we are not notified about upcoming courses.
