TNCC 8th Ed.

The Emergency Nurses Association Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) 8th ed. is a two-day course designed to provide core level trauma knowledge and psychomotor skills associated with the delivery of professional nursing care to the trauma patient. Content is presented through lectures and skills stations. This class is presented in a new and updated format.  Following registration, participants will receive an email detailing access to the required pre-course modules.  These modules MUST BE COMPLETED prior to attendance in the course.  Once the modules are completed, participants will be added to the course roster. The classroom portion is comprised of activites which reinforce and expand on the information learned in the pre-course work as well as the use of the Trauma Nursing Process in the assessment and intervention of the injured patient. Following the work in the classroom, participants will return home to review the material learned and will have up to 7 days to take a written exam from home using the textbook and all classroom resources. 

Class will be held from 9a- 6p on day 1 and 9a-3p on day 2.


ENA will issue a card verifying the successful completion of the TNCC. Expiration of verification occurs four years from the last day of the month in which the card was issued.

Only registered nurses will be awarded verification cards. LVN's and paramedics may attend the course for C.E’s.  18.3 C.E.'s will be awarded at course completion.

BLS for Healthcare Providers (Initial Certification and Renewal)

The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers Classroom Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.

ACLS (Initial Certification and Renewal)

The American Heart Association's Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support course is intended  for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital.   Through the ACLS course, providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies.  ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR and ALS interventions. 

ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader.  Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts:  proficiency in basic life support care; recognizing and initiating early ACLS management of peri-arrest conditions; managing cardiac arrest; identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes; recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations (such as stroke) and providing initial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

PALS (Initial Certification and Renewal)

The completely redesigned American Heart Association Pediatric Advanced Life Support course is based on new science evidence from the 2005 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.  The goal of the PALS course is to aid the pediatric healthcare provider in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently and effectively manage critically ill infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes. Skills taught include recognition and treatment of infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest; the systematic approach to pediatric assessment; effective respiratory management; defibrillation and synchronized cardioversion; intraosseous access and fluid bolus administration; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

This certification option is available for any student who has taken TNCC in the past or for any RN with at least 1 year of critical care experience who feels confident with their skills and wishes to renew without attending the classroom activities.  For this option, the participant MUST still complete the online modules prior to coming for Trauma Nursing Process testing and must still take the test online, open book within 7 days after the skills testing day. The only portion completed in the classroom is the TNP.

This is a completely independent study option.  While the TNP is covered in depth in the precourse modules and in the text which is provided to every student, there will be no TNP practice available prior to testing.  Each student will have 2 opportunities to successfully complete the TNP, however, if unsuccessful, no certification will be issued.  Please be prepared and practice thoroughly ahead of time.  Also, because this is a "Challenge" option and students will not participate in other classroom activities, the ENA does not authorize CEUs to be issued.  

Please consider your ability to study and prepare independently prior to registering for this option. 

Within 24 hours of your registration, you will receive an email from ENA CourseOps.  You must reply to the link within this email to access the pre-course modules.  If you do not receive the email, please contact adminstration at 832-647-1003 ASAP so that it can be resent.  If possible please use your personal email.  At times, firewalls on hospital computer systems will block the email, making inavailable to the student.

Please also provide your personal, rather than work phone number when registering.  You will be contacted by Course Director Tracey Burke, RN to schedule a time on the class date to come in to complete your TNP Skills Challenge.  

An optional workbook is available for purchase with this registration.  While it is not required, it does contain all of the PowerPoint slides and lecture notes included in the full course.  This resource is very helpful when preparing for the exam.
