One of the tips for taking the Neonatal Resuscitation Program exam is to check the NRP online examination precourse packet located at NRP section of the American Academy of Pediatrics website as of 2015. Studying the NRP textbook offered by the AAP is also necessary for applicants to form the basic knowledge surrounding the program.
The precourse packet provided by the AAP includes up-to-date information about the new NRP course format, lessons covered by the exam and requirements prior to taking the test. It also serves as a guide, as it discusses details on how to take and return to the online exam during the allotted period.
An important tip for taking the NRP exam is to read the NRP textbook. It is available on the AAP bookstore but may also be available for rent on Amazon.com. The online NRP test is arranged by lesson in the same order as the NRP/AAP textbook, and the review materials for the book complement the lessons on the exam.
To pass the exam, the applicants need to learn lessons 1 through 4 and 9 within the set amount of days. According to the 2015 precourse packet, examinees have to attain 80 percent passing scores for each lesson. Examinees may stop taking exams after lessons, but they need to complete the tests before they expire, or they need to retake the exams and pay additional examination fees.
