The purpose of Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) is to present core-level knowledge, refine skills and build a firm foundation in trauma nursing. The TNCC is a 16-hour course designed to provide the learner with cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills to better assess and treat the pediatric or trauma patient. This course includes lecture and hands-on skill stations covering assessment and treatment of the severely injured patient. The verification card is valid for four years and successful completion of the TNCC course includes passing a multiple-choice examination and demonstrating critical steps of the skill stations. Recommended for emergency room and intensive care unit nurses. Nurses in other clinical areas would benefit and should be encouraged to attend a TNCC course.
The TNCC Trauma Nursing Core Course Provider Manual, 6th Edition, will be sent prior to the course. It is imperative that participants study the textbook prior to the class to prepare for active participation and successful completion.
Only registered nurses will be awarded verification cards. Other health care providers may attend the course for contact hours. In order to maximize success in the TNCC (Provider), it is recommended that the participant have at least six months of clinical nursing experience in an emergency care setting. It is assumed that the course participant possesses generic nursing knowledge, has an understanding of emergency care terminology, and has familiarity with standard emergency equipment.
The Emergency Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. 14.42 contact hours are awarded for course participation.
