The National Pediatric Readiness Project (NPRP) empowers emergency departments (EDs) to improve their capability to provide high-quality care for children, also known as being “pediatric ready.” Research shows having a pediatric readiness score of 87 or greater on the NPRP ED Readiness assessment is associated with lower mortality in ill and injured children.


The NPRP is led by the EMSC Program in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Emergency Physicians, and the Emergency Nurses Association.
