Our goal is to provide the resources and support necessary for quality care and improved patient outcomes. We offer a variety of trauma education courses, including Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS). Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC), and Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC). To learn more, please see the descriptions below.
We are deeply committed to the welfare of patients and the advancement of healthcare. We strongly believe that by prioritizing the cultivation of healthcare leaders, we can pave the way for a brighter future for everyone.
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS®) is the standard of care identified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) for physicians who intervene with trauma victims at all levels of clinical practice. ATLS® utilizes a systematic, concise methodology for assessment and initial stabilization of the multiple-injured trauma patient. Lectures and Interactive practicum address initial assessment, airway and ventilation, shock, thoracic trauma, abdominal trauma, head trauma, spine and spinal cord trauma, musculoskeletal trauma, burn and cold injuries, trauma of pediatric, geriatric, and obstetric patients, and transfer considerations. ATLS® courses are presented in conjunction with the ACS Ohio Committee on Trauma.

Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)
The Emergency Nurses Association developed and implemented the Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) for national and international dissemination as a means of identifying a standardized body of trauma nursing knowledge. The TNCC (Provider) course is designed to provide the learner with cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills. Nurses with limited emergency nursing clinical experience, who work in a hospital with limited access to trauma patients, or who need greater time at the psychomotor skill stations, are encouraged to attend course. The course empowers nurses with the knowledge, critical thinking skills and hands-on training to provide expert care for trauma patients.

Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course
The Emergency Nurses Association developed ENPC to establish a standardized body of pediatric emergency nursing knowledge and to improve the care of all pediatric patients. The Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (Provider) course is 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 injury prevention strategies are included in the course content. ENPC is taught using a variety of formats including, online learning, lectures, videos, group discussion and hands-on skill stations that encourage participants to integrate their psychomotor abilities into a patient situation in a risk-free setting.
