Trauma Nursing Core Course


As of August 1, 2019, we will be offering the new 8th edition of the TNCC course. Due to this new edition's release, there will be no recertification courses. If you have a TNCC certification that is expiring you will need to complete the full, 2-day course. For more information on the 8th edition of this course and its implementation, click here.

TNCC, widely recognized as the premier course for hospitals and trauma centers worldwide, empowers nurses with the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and hands-on training to provide expert care for trauma patients.

This course includes:

  • Rapid identification of life-threatening injuries

  • Comprehensive patient assessment
  • Enhanced intervention for better patient outcomes


This course, developed by the Emergency Nurses Association, is meant to establish a standardized body of trauma nursing knowledge and to improve the care of all trauma patients. This seventh edition course combines interactive learning with scenario-based assessments to give nurses a comprehensive learning experience.


Course Features


  • 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. 


TNCC is a 2-Day Intensive Course that is taught by expert instructors. Day 1: 8:00am to 6:30pm; Day 2: 8:00am to 5:30pm.
