PEARS Provider Renewal Course

Course description

The one-day Pediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS) provider renewal course helps healthcare providers develop the knowledge and skills needed for emergency evaluation and treatment of seriously ill infants and children.

PEARS teaches providers how to recognize respiratory distress, shock and cardiac arrest, and provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider. The goal of PEARS is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes.


PEARS is for healthcare providers such as emergency medical technicians (EMTs), medical and surgical nurses, school nurses, and any other healthcare provider who infrequently sees critically ill infants and children.
