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.
