CPR Kids

CPR Kids

We are paediatric Registered Nurses who have cared for thousands of sick or injured babies & children.

As paediatric nurses (and parents ourselves), we know that children can get themselves into all sorts of trouble, in the blink of an eye. And they do. You barely have time to think, but your child will be relying on you.

Our expert paediatric nurse educators give you skills and knowledge so that when the time comes, you can take charge and be confident to help your child in an emergency. We pride ourselves on being recommended by leading maternity hospitals and obstetricians.

Learn with the experts. Gain confidence. Be empowered. Know what to do in an emergency.
