In spring 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will release sixth edition materials for the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). This edition brings changes in resuscitation practice and a new education methodology that shifts the instructor from "teacher" to "learning facilitator" and requires the NRP course participant to assume more responsibility for learning. The change from a lecture format to simulation-based learning requires instructors to learn new skills and meet new requirements to maintain instructor status.The sixth edition of the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation and the fifth edition of the Instructor's Manual for Neonatal Resuscitation are currently in press. The AAP granted permission to use material from these forthcoming publications in this article.
