TNCC applicable to Critical Care Nursing?

  1. 0 Would TNCC be helpful to critical care nursing? I had heard it was based on assessing a patient when they first arrive to the hospital, but if you are likely to see trauma patients in your ICU, would TNCC be helpful? Are there any other courses that may be also be helpful for critical care?

    I'm planning on taking the TNCC class once it opens up in 2013, from what I have heard it is very valuable to critical care nursing.

    An excellent course, it can be applied to any area and it will improve your critical thinking as well as help organise your assessments in ways you never imagined. As a suggestion, get the book now and prepare...you will get more out of it that way. Don't pass it by!
