Advanced Trauma Care For Nurses
Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN) is an advanced course designed for the registered nurse interested in increasing his/her knowledge in management of the multiple trauma patients. The ATCN course is taught concurrently with ATLS. The ATCN program has been operational for over 20 years and has an excellent record of offering a superb trauma educa- tional 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. Benefits of the ATCN Course include an educational, team building, collabor- ative, synchronized approach to trauma care as trauma nurses share didactic lectures wit the physician attendee of the ATLSĀ® Course. Physicians and nurses caring for trauma patients have the opportunity to share a common language and approach to trauma care. When the A TLS
attendees break out for physician skill stations the ATCN nurses join small group trauma nursing skill stations. The ATCN course was developed in response to a need for advanced trauma education for nurses. The ATCN course has been operational for over twenty years and is under the auspices of the Society of Trauma Nurses (STN). STN is a professional, international nursing organization that spans the continuum of trauma care. May is National Trauma Awareness Month. In 1988, Ronald Reagan recognized the need for trauma awareness and established May as the month for us to dedicate our time and resources to increasing
