M.A.R.Y. B. has been supporting nursing advancement at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island for the last several years. Last week, we learned that the funds donated by our foundation have allowed every emergency department nurse at Hasbro to complete the Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC).
The Emergency Nurses Association developed and implemented the TNCC for national and international dissemination as a means of identifying a standardized body of trauma nursing knowledge. The TNCC is a two-day course designed to provide the learner with cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills. This course helps Hasbro maintain the pediatric trauma center designation.
