Are you asking if you can purchase bulk seats for NRP for users that do not work in your hospital?
I am having the same problem. I am unsure of how, or even where, to purchase the online portion for students to assign them and have them complete ahead of an instructor-led event. Did you obtain any answers?
You should be able to get the NRP instructor seats needed by reaching out to your HealthStream Account Manager.
Please let me know if I can assist further.
Thank you for your response. What I am wanting to learn is how to issue the online class portion to students (not instructor candidates) external to my facility. I can easily assign employee and contract staff through HealthStream. But I have a student that reached out from another city and facility asking to be taught the class. In this situation for HeartCode BLS, ACLS, and PALS I would purchase the course at the AHA eLearning.heart.org site and share the course with them for their access. But I am not finding where a student can purchase the course online.
Thank you for clarifying, I have confirmed that this is the procedure to follow to get course access for those individuals:
- Direct student to the AAP website to pay/take the online course https://www.aap.org/en-us/continuing-medical-education/life-support/NRP/Pages/NRP.aspx
- Once the student has created a HealthStream ID, they need to remember that ID to present to the hospital
- Once student has completed the online course, the hospital can search for the student using their HealthStream ID and then add them to an event (skills session)
If you need help with this process, HealthStream customer service can assist.
My partner and I do this often, but I don't think there's a way to block purchase the online (Part 1) part. We instruct the students to create individual Healthstream accounts (keeping track of their log-in in case they already have an account with their employer). They have to pay the $35 to Healthstream, and then they pay us separately for the Instructor Led portion.
Couple other tips:
Though it's annoying, we have found it avoids problems to register the students for the live-event ourselves.
If they do the online portion through their employer account (more of a risk for RNs), we sometimes have a hard time "finding" their account to register them for the live event. They have to be "released" by their account administrator. That's a real pain.
