Manual: The latest edition of the TNCC Provider Manual includes evidence-based content developed by trauma emergency experts.

The modules are a complete case study process — taking you through an entire sequence of care. A rescheduling fee of $100 applies if unable to attend due to incomplete modules.

Live simulation: TNCC includes training using both an individual and team approach. Trauma nursing process skills stations offer you the opportunity to practice trauma patient assessments and interventions in a controlled environment.
