Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course - 4th Edition (December 2-3, 2013)
The Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC) is a 15 hour course developed by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) to educate nurses on caring for acutely ill and injured children. The course teaches participants to recognize the ill or injured child and identify significant, yet subtle changes in the less acute child. Additionally, the course teaches all aspects of pediatric emergency nursing, including, but not limited to pediatric trauma or resuscitation. The ultimate goal of the course is to improve the care of the pediatric patient by increasing the knowledge, skill, and confidence of emergency nurses who care for children.
 
Verification of successful course completion is based on passing the written exam and one psychomotor skills station, and is valid for four years. 
 
ENA, with the approval of the American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation, has approved the ENPC provider course for 15 contact hours for RN’s. 12 CECH hours are approved for paramedics through CECBEMS.
 
Both days of this course are scheduled for 7am - 6pm.  Registration fee covers all course materials, including ENCP Provider Manual 4th edition ($60 value), exam fee, continental breakfast, and parking validation for one day.  Lunch is on your own.
 
Cancellations must be received by email no later than 15 working days prior to course date to receive refund of registration fee (minus a $25 administrative fee).
