Nurses with limited emergency nursing clinical experience, who work in a hospital with limited access to trauma patients, or who need greater time at the psychomotor skill stations are encouraged to attend courses scheduled for the 20-hour format. Contact Hours are provided by National ENA.

Emergency Nurses Pediatric Course (ENPC)

A nationally standardized 16-hour course designed to provide the learner with pediatric emergency nursing knowledge and psychomotor skill experience.
