The two-day ENA Certified TNCC Provider, 8th Edition prepares the student with the knowledge, critical thinking and skills training necessary to provide quality nursing care to the adult trauma patient.
Every second counts when stabilizing life-threatening trauma cases. This course, taught by experienced TNCC instructors, teaches you to provide high-quality trauma care. You will learn to combine evidence-based knowledge, critical thinking and psychomotor skills within a systematic approach.
The first day focuses on: initial assessment, shock, skull & brain injury, abdominal trauma, thoracic & neck trauma and airway & ventilation. The second day focuses on skin & musculoskeletal injuries, burns and spinal trauma.
Over the two days, there are multiple Trauma Nursing Process (TNP) skill stations, with both an individual and team approach. These psychomotor skill stations allow you to practice assessing and applying interventions to trauma patients in a controlled environment. A TNP test will take place at the end of the second day.
