The one-day ENA Certified TNCC Refresher is an abbreviated version of TNCC, 8th edition. It was developed for nurses who need to renew their TNCC provider certification.
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 emphasis is on self-study using the TNCC manual and the interactive online modules. The Refresher (also called “Fast Track”) consists of only a small portion of didactic instruction. However, the student does go through the same Trauma Nursing Process (TNP) skill station as the full two-day TNCC Provider. At the end of the day there will be a TNP practical test and an (open book) theory test.
