RE:             2019 Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) Dates


ED Nurse Mangers & Nurses,

NB Trauma Program has been responsible for provincial TNCC coordination since April 2012. We are currently teaching the 7th edition with the 8th edition being released later this year by The Emergency Nurses Association (ENA).  ENA currently has a planned released date of April 2019.

Due to the upcoming release of the 8th edition, we are only able to provide dates for the 2019 spring courses (which will be offered using the 7th edition).  Fall course dates will be announced later and will be based on the 8th edition TNCC format.

We also look forward to ENA offering a French translation of the 8th edition and we will provide further information as it becomes available.

The current registration form for the spring 2019 courses can be found online at: https://nbtrauma.ca/education/tncc .

Please post this memo in your respective Emergency Department for nursing staff awareness.

Thank you for your patience while we await the exciting release of the 8th edition of TNCC!
