Event Details

Course Description

Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN) is an advanced course designed for the registered nurse interested in increasing his/her knowledge in the management of the multiple trauma patients. The ATCN course is taught concurrently with ATLS. The ATCN program has been operational for over 15 years and has an excellent record of offering a superb trauma educational program, and maintaining a positive collaboration with the ACS Committee on Trauma State Chapters. The ATCN program is currently being offered in numerous states as well as internationally.

ATCN learners participate in facilitated ATLS discussions.  Additionally nurses participate in ATCN Skill stations which include:

  • Initial Assessment & Management
  • Airway & Ventilatory Management
  • Pediatric Trauma
  • Hemorrhagic Shock
  • Musculoskeletal & Spine Trauma
  • Head Trauma

The Skill Stations are based on an interactive "hands-on: scenario-based approach" to adult education. The practical testing stations allow the ATCN students to demonstrate the application of ATLS and ATCN information on a moulaged patient. Participants receive both a ATCN manual and an ATLS manual. 

**Participants are expected to have reviewed both texts prior to class in order to successfully participate**

Program Schedule

For those taking the course, class will begin each day at 7:30am with registration and breakfast starting at 7:15 am.  Class will end by 5:00pm on day 1 and please expect to stay until 5:30p on day 2, to allow enough time to complete your practical and written test.

Cancellation Policy

Particpants that cancel will be charged the cost of both manuals, if the manuals have been delivered to the participant, which currently totals $140. Any remaining registration fee will be refunded onto the original method of payment. 

NO refunds will be provided to those that cancel their registration between 0-6 days of the course start date. 

Please contact the course sponsor at 919.350.1700 x10039 or simulation@wakemed.org for any questions.
