TNCC for New Grad
- 0Jul 18, '10 by Michael-Male-RNI'm a new grad (well, last year), and I'm interested in taking the TNCC course in Massachusetts, but I haven't found any classes around. Does anyone know where I can find information about TNCC courses in Massachusetts? I haven't had much luck in my job hunt, and I'm hoping more certifications, like the TNCC, will help.

if its not working,
go to ENA's website, click courses/education, then TNCC, then click your state.

If you plan on not working the ER, its pointless and a waste of money. Most ER don't require TNCC unless its a level 1 or 2 trauma designation.
I would suggest the basics like BLS, PALS, and ACLS.
- 0Jul 19, '10 by HuachucaI would advise you to take the TNCC. It is a great class to nail down head to toe assessments, regardless of your specialty. Will it open doors for you? Probably not, except that it will show your willingness to continue your education. I precept new grads in the ER as well as nurses that are changing specialties. The TNCC makes you focus on what is the priority.
