TNCC, widely recognized as the premier course for hospitals and trauma centers worldwide, empowers nurses with the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and hands-on training to provide expert care for trauma patients.

  • Rapid identification of life-threatening injuries
  • Comprehensive patient assessment
  • Enhanced intervention for better patient outcomes

A Systematic Approach to Initial Assessment

The first few minutes of trauma care are critical to achieving better patient outcomes. The A – I mnemonic and the Trauma Nursing Assessment will assist nurses in providing appropriate and early intervention.

Hands-on Training Using both an Individual and Team Approach

Three Psychomotor skill stations offer nurses the opportunity to practice the systematic approach of the initial assessment in real life situations. The skill stations covered are Trauma Nursing Process, Airway and Ventilation, and Trauma Interventions.

ENA will issue a card verifying the successful completion of the TNCC. Expiration of verification occurs four years from the first day of the month in which the card was issued.
