The NRP Instructor DVD is a comprehensive interactive DVD with video-based depiction of the skills, techniques and technologies for effective scenario development and debriefing. This "workshop in a box" serves as a guide to help prepare the NRP instructor to implement a simulation-based learning methodology.
This activity has been accredited for up to 4 hours of continuing education credit for physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and EMTs.
Included on the DVD:
- Brief explanations of the philosophy and evidence supporting a change to simulation-based learning
- Techniques and tools for creating and facilitating realistic, challenging clinical scenarios and conducting effective debriefing in both simple and complex learning environments
- Interactive video that demonstrates techniques for effective simulation-based learning, including the use of video for enhancing debriefing
- Video clips of neonatal resuscitation skills to support self-directed learning or specific video instruction during Provider or Instructor courses
Each current and future NRP instructor will be required to purchase his or her own DVD, which will offer continuing education credit.

It has come to our attention that some users are experiencing difficulty running the NRP Instructor DVD on Apple computers. If you have recently purchased a new Mac computer, or updated your computer software to Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion), you will receive an error message stating that the DVD is not compatible with your computer.
With the release of Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion), Apple has removed support for a component that enables Adobe products to run on newer Intel-based Mac systems. Our software team is working hard to determine a solution to this issue, and enable disk compatibility with OS X v10.7 (Lion).
The NRP Instructor DVD will still function on Mac OS X v10.4-10.6, and Windows computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
