L110723 Neonatal APP Bootcamp - 2 day: November 7 & 9, 2023

Minneapolis, MN US
November 7, 2023 to November 9, 2023

This program prepares the Advanced Practice Provider (APP), either NNP or PA, or NICU Hospitalists, to utilize best practices in procedural skills and leadership and communication skills. The class utilizes simulation based mastery learning (SBML) to help the participant build confidence and competence during role transition. SBML allows all learners the opportunity to achieve the learning outcomes with an individualized amount of time required based on learner needs.   

Program Goal: Upon completion of the neonatal boot camp, NNPs/PAs/Hospitalists will develop skills essential to the transition to practice as a new APP.  

Target Audience

Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NNP), Physician Assistants (PA), and NICU Hospitalists recently transitioning into a provider role in Neonatology. NNPs hired with less than three years of experience as a NNP to Children’s Minnesota will complete the Neonatal boot camp as part of the orientation process. 

Learning Objectives

  • Practice leadership and communication skills (ie: TeamSTEPPs and NRP behavioral skills) during simulated multiple resuscitation/stabilization scenarios.
  • Demonstrate minimum passing standards outlined on the assessment tool for leadership and communication during resuscitation/stabilization in the simulated environment
  • Demonstrate minimum passing standards for chest tub insertion, intubation, and for umbilical line placement
  • Identify one mindfulness technique to ease transition to practice
