Accurate assessment of a child with an acute illness or injury requires special knowledge and skills. ENA’s two-day Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPCTM) is designed to provide the core-level pediatric knowledge and psychomotor skills needed to care for pediatric patients in the emergency setting.

The course presents a systematic assessment model, integrates the associated anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, and identifies appropriate interventions. ENPCTM is the only pediatric emergency nursing course written by pediatric nurse experts.

ENPCTM uses a variety of instructional formats (online learning, lectures, videos, group discussion and hands-on skill stations) that encourage the participant to integrate psychomotor abilities into a risk-free patient scenario.

Topics include epidemiology, assessment, triage, respiratory emergencies, respiratory failure, shock, pediatric trauma, child maltreatment, neonatal emergencies, medical emergencies, crisis intervention, environmental issues, toxicological issues, ethical and legal issues, and stabilization and transport. Skills stations include airway/ventilation, position/securing, vascular access/medication administration, pediatric multiple trauma, pediatric resuscitation, and triage.
