The Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) is a one and a half day course developed by the Emergency Nurses Association to present a firm foundation in trauma nursing and to provide nurses with core or basic trauma cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills that are associated with the delivery of professional nursing care to the trauma patient.
The goal of TNCC is to improve trauma patient outcomes by providing nurses with foundational trauma knowledge, skills, and a systematic Trauma Nursing Process to guide trauma patient care.
Verification of successful course completion is based on passing the written exam and the Trauma Nursing Process (TNP) psychomotor skills station. Verification is valid for four years.
This 8th edition TNCC provider course has been approved for 18.3 contact hours for RNs.
Participants must be an RN and possess a current unrestricted nursing license to receive verification.
**Pre-registration is required - Participant seats are limited based on instructor-to-student ratios. Seats will be assigned to paid registrants in the order registration fees and materials are received.
Pre-course modules MUST be completed in advance; failure to complete will result in inability to attend class.
