TNCC – Trauma Nursing Core Course

CSRE is a Richmond metro area based organization dedicated to enriching the community by providing quality education on emergency and safety preparedness.​

“TNCC, 9th Edition, prepares emergency nurses for life-threatening trauma cases when every second counts. The course gives you the knowledge, critical thinking skills and training needed to provide high-quality trauma nursing care.” – ENA University


Course Format

  • A printed Provider Manual (9th Edition) is available for pick-up from the CSRE Classroom on Parham Road. Additionally, delivery of the manual by US Mail is available to accommodate students attending the course from out of town.
  • Online modules are provided through the ENA University (Emergency Nurses Association). Students complete the modules at their own pace, apply what they’ve learned along the way and receive immediate feedback. Take note that all modules must be complete before attending the in-person sessions.
  • Simulations offer training using both an individual and team approach. Likewise, skills stations provide students with the opportunity to practice assessment and intervention in a controlled environment.
  • One-and-a-half days of instructor-led classroom discussions and skill stations is at the heart of the Trauma Nursing Core Course. Students may stay in the classroom to take the written test or depart after the skills test, on the second day, to complete the written test at home.

Course Prerequisites

  • Participants must be a registered nurse who possesses a current unrestricted nursing license to receive verification.
  • Licensed practical nurses and paramedics are eligible to attend all portions of the course and obtain CNE hours, but are not eligible for provider status verification.

Course Registration

CSRE offers TNCC every few months throughout the year. To this end, click the button below to view the course calendar, bearing in mind this is a two-day course. The registration fee is partially subsidized to make TNCC available to individual providers paying out of pocket for the course. The fee does include your printed Provider Manual available for pick-up from the CSRE Classroom on Parham Road. Alternatively, delivery of the manual by US Mail is available as an add-on option. While registration is available up to the class date, the ENA requires students to have access to their Provider Manual and the Online Modules 30-days in advance.


As well as TNCC, Community Safety & Response Educators offers American Heart Association BLS certification, ACLS certification, and PALS certification to the Richmond and Charlottesville communities. We look forward to helping you succeed!
