I am attempting to cross train so I can be loaned to our trauma unit at the facility I do PRN work with. I plan to take the TNCC Course in July. I am fortunate to get the book loaned to me by the education department.
I am concerned about taking a course in which I have no direct experience. Could anyone offer some advice as to how to prep for the course, other then just reading thorugh the book?
I found this article of interest on the Internet and thought I would share it here:
TNCC Provider Cource
The TNCC Provider course takes place over two or three days and consists of both formal lectures and practical skill stations. A comprehensive research based manual is sent to the candidate prior to the course.
Practical sessions encourage hands on participation where candidates will learn to assess the trauma patient, identify life threatening injuries and provide the correct interventions.
To successfully complete the course, candidates are required to correctly demonstrate three practical skill stations and achieve an 80% pass rating in a multiple choice examination.
