Irving, Texas: TNCC Provider Course 2 Day Course

Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) ENA developed and implemented the TNCC for national and international dissemination as a means of identifying a standardized body of trauma nursing knowledge. The TNCC (Provider) is a 16 or 20-hour course designed to provide the learner with cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills. Nurses with limited emergency nursing clinical experience, who work in a hospital with limited access to trauma patients, or who need greater time at the psychomotor skill stations are encouraged to attend courses scheduled for the 20-hour format. The TNCC (Instructor) course is an 8-hour course designed to prepare nurses to become TNCC (Provider) Instructors. The nurse must have successfully completed the provider course prior to attending the Instructor course. The Instructor course emphasizes appropriate teaching strategies as well as correct evaluation methods. Provider Course Participants The TNCC may be officially attended by registered nurses (RN's). Other health care providers may attend the course as observers. 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. Organization of the TNCC Provider Course Manual The TNCC (Provider) manual is designed to reinforce and supplement lectures and psychomotor skills content. The interactive psychomotor skill stations facilitate initial integration of psychomotor abilities in a risk-free setting which simulate trauma patient situations. The following psychomotor skill stations are included in the TNCC (Provider): Trauma Nursing Process (scenario-driven, interactive trauma assessment), Airway and Ventilation Interventions, Spinal Immobilization, Selected Interventions: Chest Trauma and Traction Splinting. A ratio of one faculty per four learners is required. Each participant is provided the opportunity to practice the identified skills during rotation through the skill stations.
