Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)

The Advanced Trauma Life Support course teaches a systematic, concise approach to the early care of the trauma patient. This course is vital to guiding care for the injured patient in emergency department trauma rooms. ATLS course training provides a common language that can save lives in critical situations.

Bleeding Control (B-Con) Course

The B-Con course has been developed in response to a call from the Hartford Consensus for direct training of immediate responders (lay personnel) and professional first responders in external hemorrhage control.

Emergency Nurse Association (ENA)


Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)

ENA 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) is a two-day course designed to provide the learner with cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills. The purpose of TNCC is to present core-level knowledge, refine skills and build a firm foundation in trauma nursing.
