Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)
In the United States, trauma remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in people less than 44 years of age. Caring for trauma patients requires knowledge, skill and a comprehensive, coordinated approach to provide the best possible outcome. This course is an essential educational component for nurses who are actively involved in caring for the trauma patient.
The TNCC 1-day Renewal course is designed for RNs who have taken either the 6th Edition or
7th TNCC provider course and want to renew their TNCC verification status PRIOR to their
verification expiration date. The new self study 1- Day Renewal course provides 7.7 contact
hours. The participant must have:
- A current TNCC provider verification status
- A current 7th edition TNCC Provider manual
- Instructions and access to the online modules at least 30 days prior to the course
the preparation for the provider verification testing. In order for the participants to have the
greatest chance of successfully completing the 1-Day course, the participant will need to study
in advance. This is especially true if the participants have not taken the 7th Edition
Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC)
Trauma is the leading cause of death in children; however, acute illnesses are also responsible for childhood deaths. Understanding normal child development and recognizing the subtle changes in the pediatric population is essential to restore health and well being. The ENPC combines nursing assessment and intervention skills to facilitate care for the acutely ill or injured child.
Safety Whys Child Care Course
Do you have a child who is 11 – 17 years of age, who enjoys other children and would like to begin babysitting? The Safety Whys course does just that! This 7 hour program focuses on the child’s actions, logical consequences and interventions necessary to keep the child safe. Students will increase confidence during role play throughout the day’s activities and will be better prepared as a caretaker.
Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death and disability in children ages 1 – 14. Trauma also affects adults, particularly the elderly population. Through wide ranging educational programs, the majority of these injuries can be avoided. Preventive practices include riding restrained on every road trip, wearing protective gear while riding a bike or playing contact sports and making your home safe for children and the elderly.
