ENPC is a 16-hour certification training course designed to provide core-level pediatric knowledge and psychomotor skills needed to care for pediatric patients in the emergency setting. The course presents a systematic assessment model, integrates the associated anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, and identifies appropriate interventions. Triage categorization and prevention strategies are included in the course content. The ENPC training course is taught using a variety of formats, including lectures, videotapes and includes skill stations that encourage participants to integrate their psychomotor abilities into a patient situation in a risk-free class setting.
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.
