The Parenting Resources'
Certified Newborn Nanny Course

So you've decided to take your career to the next level. Maybe you're hoping to make more income. Maybe you'd like to be more competitive and get more work. Maybe you'd like for clients to be confident in your training and skill set because they know that you're Certified by one of the leading education organizations in the country.  We commend you for taking the next step and pursuing Certification!

The Hybrid version of the course is the best of both worlds- online and in person. Students learn at their own pace and on their own schedule on our easy to use online platform, which is a combination of lectures and demonstration videos. Students then come together for an intensive hands on skills training where they learn every fundamental skill they'll need to impress their clients right from the start. 

What are the requirements for Certification?

1.) Parenting Resources Certified Newborn Nannies pass a comprehensive written exam to ensure that they have a solid grasp on current recommendation, evidence-based data, and the foundational knowledge to be exemplary care providers.

2.) They then pass a rigorous hands-on in person skills assessment where they show instructors that they have mastery of all essential newborn care skills.

3.) All Parenting Resources trainees must provide a BLS for healthcare providers (or equivalent) card in order to be certified

4.) All Certified Newborn Nannies are required to take 30 hours of continuing education every 3 years to maintain their Certification, ensuring that they remain up to date on the most current of recommendations, methods, and trends of newborn care. Parenting Resources schedules many in person and online opportunities for continuing education every year and there are many classes and conferences locally and nationally that fulfill these requirements.

No training program in the country offers a more comprehensive curriculum. See the difference for your yourself...
