Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses

TCN Student Provider

The Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN) Course is taught concurrently with the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) for physicians. This program is presented by the Society of Trauma Nurses in cooperation with The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. This course was developed to teach established standards of trauma care and practical lifesaving skills. This course includes didactic presentations coupled with corresponding practical skill stations and moulage assessment stations which demonstrate the application of didactic information.

ATCN Student Hybrid

The Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses Hybrid Course (ATCN- H) is taught independently of the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course. This program consists of online didactic module preparation and hands-on skills. This course will prepare the learner in the same manner as the ATCN 2-day provider course but is delivered in a 1-day in-person format. This course includes 13 online didactic modules (taking approximately 9 hours) preparation coupled with corresponding practical skill stations and assessment stations for didactic application.
