Certification will be issued from ENA upon successful completion of the evaluated psychomotor skill station and the multiple choice examination. Contact hours are awarded based on hours attended, regardless of performance during evaluation. The most current ENA textbook is mandatory for entrance into the course, and will be available for purchase during the registration process. Whether you purchase the ENA textbook during registration or have access to your own copy, you must bring your textbook with you to class or you will be unable to attend class. ENA courses carry unusually high costs of sponsorship due to specialty faculty requirements and strictly enforced student-to-instructor ratios. For this reason we are unable to provide refunds or credits for last-minute rescheduling. Any student who does not comply with ENA's policy on textbooks may be omitted from participation in the class and their registration fees forfeited.

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