Course description

The Emergency Nurses Association Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC): Challenge is intended for those who have previously taken TNCC and wish to forgo all lectures and skills stations.

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.

Directions to complete the pre-course modules and a pre-test will be e-mailed to participants approximately 30 days prior to the class date.

Prerequisites and preparation

Only registered nurses will be awarded verification cards.

It is imperative that participants study the textbook, complete the pre-course modules and pre-test prior to the class to prepare for active participation and successful completion.
