I took and passed TNCC yesterday. Checked the seabird site and looked at practice test. The questions are worded differently than the actual exam, but the answer choices are right on. Advice; know what each of those answer choices are. Most importantly, read the book. There were no tricks, the test came right from the book and the lectures. Remember primary and secondary assessments, and know the material in the book. Each chapter begins with a brief review of A&P for the subject. If you are weak in that area, review the patho for it. BTW, I am not an ED nurse yet. Due to the nursing job shortage here in New England, I thought I would educate myself in an effort to help make myself more marketable. I was the only non-ED nurse out of 10 students.
Good luck and READ THE BOOK!!!

- 0Quote from ready4crna?you need to get down the Mnemonics of ABC, etc.... primary/secondary. Remember to think logically and chronologically.In the center of the book should be some testing materials. I cant remember if they are practical or written help, but the items with stars next to them are fail points. Start to get familiar with these and review general pathophys of traumatic injury. (shock, emboli, mechanisms of injury, etc.) Good luck!
If you do that, you won't forget. Keep it orderly.
- 0Quote from Lots of Questionsno, it's not just EMS training for nurses.I'm looking over the book now and am taking the class next week. It seems to me that its basically EMS training for RNs. If you have any EMT/Paramedic background, things should be good...it seems?
It's pretty detailed and specific to the emergent situation as it relates to nursing.
