TNCC: Anyone have experience? (Trauma Nurse Core Course)

  1. Hey everyone,

    So I am a new grad RN and thought TNCC will make myself more marketable for the ER.. I got the book today and the concepts/patho/physiology is all fresh in my mind still from NCLEX but I am mostly WORRIED about the practical stations - What do they test us on? What are some tips you can offer on passing?

    Its is actually fun. you learn the mechanisms of trauma and will go thru each station to practice before you actually test.

    Hi litbit! Thanks for your reply, do you mind sharing with me what each station encompasses?

    I found the TNCC course to be really fun! The instructors were not intimidating at the stations, and we worked together to get thru them.It was a very good experience. Look forward to it!

    Glad to know jmt.. I am just concerned with the stations as a new grad not familiar with "trauma equipment"
