TNCC 8th Ed.

The Emergency Nurses Association Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) 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.

Thank you for enrolling in TNCC 8th ed. This a 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 10:00a- 5p on day 1.  Because so much of this course is completed at home prior to classroom attendance, I am offering a "Challenge" option to experienced providers.  Those choosing this option may schedule a time between 8a-10a prior to the start of the scheduled class to demonstrate proficiency in the skills (TNP) portion of the course.  The precourse modules must still be completed prior to the course date.  If successfull in the skills portion, participants will then be cleared to test at their convenience within the 7 day timeline.  New providers and those seeking additional classroom reinforcement will attend class from 10a-5p.  Skills testing will be offered, although not required at the end of Day 1.  Those seeking additional time to prepare or those who were unsuccessful with skills testing on Day 1 will have an additional opportunity to return the following day for additional practice and testing on Day 2 beginning at 8a. Drinks and snacks are provided daily with lunch on your own.  Your textbook will be sent after your registration, however, if you registered less than 5 business days prior to the start of class, you will receive your book on the first day of your TNCC 8th ed course. Last minute registration will not give you access to the textbook for use with the required pre-course work, so please plan accordingly.  



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.  17.65 C.E.'s will be awarded at course completion.

ENPC 4th Ed.

Accurate assessment of a child with an acute illness or injury requires special knowledge and skills. ENA’s two-day Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course is designed to provide the core-level pediatric knowledge and psychomotor skills needed to care for pediatric patients in the emergency setting.

The course presents a systematic assessment model, integrates the associated anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, and identifies appropriate interventions. ENPC is the only pediatric emergency nursing course written by pediatric nurse experts.

ENPC uses a variety of formats, including online learning, lectures, videos, group discussion, and hands-on skill stations, that encourage you to integrate your psychomotor abilities into a patient situation in a risk-free setting.

Topics include epidemiology, assessment, triage, respiratory emergencies, respiratory failure, shock, pediatric trauma, child maltreatment, neonatal emergencies, medical emergencies, crisis intervention, environmental issues, toxicological issues, ethical and legal issues, stabilization and transport. Skills stations include airway/ventilation, position/securing, vascular access/medication administration, pediatric multiple trauma, pediatric resuscitation, and triage.



Upon successful completion of the course (written and skills exams), each participant will receive a verification card from ENA. 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.  15.58 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.
