The Trauma Nursing Core Course is two-day course designed to cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills related to caring for an injured adult. The course presents a systematic assessment model, integrates associated anatomy, physiology/ pathophysiology, and identifies appropriate interventions. Triage categorization is included in the course content. TNCC is taught using a variety of formats:  lectures, video & skill stations that encourage participants to integrate their psychomotor abilities into a patient situation in a risk-free setting.

 You MUST have a book in hand 30 days prior to the schedueld class and we have to close enrollments 30 days ahead, too. No more “squeezing anyone in” at the last minute can be allowed.
 TNCC books must be 8th Edition
 There are pre-course modules that must be done in advance and completion certificates must be brought to the instructor-led class. 
 You are required to go back online within 1 week after the instructor-led class and take your exams. Cards will no longer be issued by the instructor at the class because of this.
 Because of the intensity of the course, please do not enroll if you’re not sure you can attend, and/or won’t have time to study and complete the pre-course work.
 Ideal student experiences rely on a full turnout in the small class size of four. Because of these dynamics, late cancelation/no-shows may result in fees being charged to you or your Ardent cost center (internal employees). External customers that pay in advance will not receive full refunds for cancelations with less than 48 hours’ notice.
