Our training will teach the nursing skills necessary to provide appropriate and early intervention to trauma patients.  The skills stations, which include Trauma Nursing Process, Airway and Ventilation, and Trauma Interventions, give nurses the opportunity to put their knowledge and skills to practice in simulated real-life scenarios.  These hands-on skill stations help you incorporate cognitive knowledge into application of skills in a safe practice environment.

  • A systematic approach of the initial assessment
  • Hands on training using both an individual and team approach
