Trauma Nurse Core Course

Format: Resident, Exportable

The Provider Course is a two-day educational program in which a registered nurse attendee, who successfully passes the written and psychomotor testing requirements, receives verification as a TNCC Provider for a four-year period. TNCC is based on best emergency nursing practices with the goal of improving patient care in the emergency setting and increasing the skill and confidence of emergency nurses who care for these patients.  This course provides a systematic, concise approach to the early care of trauma patients and provides the essential information and skills for providers to identify treat life-threatening and potentially life-threatening injuries associated with the care of patients.  It is a standardized, interactive course recognized internationally as providing the learner with core-level trauma knowledge and psychomotor skills experience. TNCC integrates the trauma nursing process into its content.

The target population is military Nurse Corps Officers. 

The course offers 14.42 contact hours.
