Emergency nurses need to be prepared to care for pediatric patients and recognize when they may be experiencing a life-or limb-threatening illness or injury and provide appropriate interventions and care, ensuring the child receives appropriate definitive care.

ENPC is designed to help you learn core-level pediatric knowledge and the psychomotor skills needed to positively affect patient outcomes in emergency departments. It presents a systematic assessment model; integrates associated anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology and identifies appropriate interventions.

Highlights include:

  • Performing a systematic triage assessment
  • Identifying subtle changes that indicate a worsening condition in a pediatric patient
  • Cultural considerations
  • Pain management
  • Techniques for interacting with the child and family
  • And more…..

TNCC provides you with cognitive, core-level trauma knowledge and psychomotor skills experience in an interactive format. The hands-on psychomotor skill stations help you incorporate cognitive knowledge into application of skills in a safe practice environment.

Course Highlights include:

  • Abdominal, pediatric and pregnancy trauma
  • Airway and ventilation interventions
  • Initial assessment and shock
  • Spinal immobilization
