Developed by the International Emergency Nursing Association, the seventh edition of the course is the premier course for hospitals and trauma centres worldwide. TNCC empowers nurses with critical thinking skills, and hands-on scenario-based training for:
- Rapid identification of life-threatening injuries
- Comprehensive patient assessment
- Enhanced intervention for better patient outcomes
Registered nurses are the only health care providers eligible for TNCC verification. Non-RN licensed healthcare providers who work in an emergency setting can participate in the written and skill station testing portion of a TNCC Provider course. The non-RN licensed healthcare provider who attends the provider courses will receive a certificate of attendance with the appropriate number of nursing Contact Hours awarded, but will not receive a verification card or verification status.
TNCC is an Intensive Course that is taught by expert instructors. There is a faculty ratio of approximately one faculty per four learners.
A Systematic Approach of Initial Assessment
The first few minutes of trauma care are critical to achieve 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.
