Neonatal/Pediatric Specialty (NPS)

The Neonatal/Pediatric Respiratory Care Specialty (NPS) Examination objectively measures the knowledge and skills of respiratory therapists working in this specialty area. It goes above and beyond general respiratory care activities to focus specifically on competencies that are unique to neonatal/pediatric respiratory care. Therefore, wearing the RRT-NPS badge of distinction signals to employers, colleagues, and patients that your skills are highly specialized.

The NPS Examination is available for respiratory care professionals who have proven their dedication to excellence by earning the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential. For more information, click or tap on a topic below, or visit our NPS Exam FAQs.
