Description: The Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC) is a 16-hour course designed to provide core-level pediatric knowledge and psychomotor skills needed to care for pediatric patients in the emergency setting. The course presents a sys-tematic assessment model, integrates the associated anatomy, physiology and path-ophysiology and identifies appropriate interventions. Triage categorization and in-jury prevention strategies are included in the course content. This course provides participants the opportunity to develop their pediatric emergency nursing skills while expanding their personal growth by collaborating with nurses from a variety of practice settings.
Objectives: Upon conclusion of this program participants will have a greater un-derstanding of:
*Completing an observational or across-the-room assessment
*Identifying subtle changes that indicate deterioration
*Developmental approach to pediatric care
*Cultural considerations in pediatric care
*Pain assessment and management for children
*Techniques for family-centered care
