TNCC Course


Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)
TNCC is a 2-Day Intensive Course that is taught by expert instructors designed to provide the registered nurse with relevant cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills to manage trauma patients in the resuscitation room. There is a faculty ratio of approximately one faculty per four learners.

The seventh edition course combines interactive learning with scenario-based assessments to give nurses a comprehensive learning experience. The course includes:

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

24 Chapter Comprehensive Manual
The TNCC Seventh Edition contains evidence-based content developed by trauma experts to reinforce and supplement the lectures and skill stations. It is a compilation of current trauma nursing standards and is a valuable resource for future reference

Courses are provided at designated centres around the UK and Eire. To find out more about the course or to find a venue near you visit our courses page.
