UPDATED ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES

The Administrative Procedures have been updated with two items, effective immediately:

  1. TNCC Reverification courses can continue to be held; however, effective 12/31/2012, no contact hours can be awarded for attending the course.
  2. Non-RN healthcare providers who work in an emergency setting can participate in the written and skill station testing of both the ENPC and TNCC Provider courses. The non-RN healthcare worker who attends a Provider course will receive a certificate of attendance with the appropriate number of contact hours, but will not receive a verification card or verification status.

Please refer to the Administrative Procedures posted on the TNCC and ENPC pages of the ENA web site for further details.

ENPC PROVIDER MANUAL ERRATA

Effective 1/28/13, all ENPC 4th Edition Provider manuals that are shipped will have an errata document included, until the next reprint is needed. This errata document can also be found on the following ENPC page of the ENA web site:

http://www.ena.org/coursesandeducation/ENPC-TNCC/enpc/Pages/Default.aspx

We anticipate reprinting the ENPC 4th Edition Provider manuals in the spring. We appreciate everyone’s assistance in identifying these changes.

 

ENPC 4th EDITION INSTRUCTOR UPDATE

The deadline for completing the ENPC 4th Edition Instructor Update is February 28th.  The update can be found on your Personal Learning Page under the Courses and Education tab on the ENA website.  It is necessary to indicate that you reviewed the video/modules before you can access the 50-question exam.  This can be found under the Assessment tab within each module.

 

eCourseOps allows course directors to register ENPC 4th Edition Provider course participants to provide them with access to the pre-course modules in the Center for e-Learning. On the landing page of eCourseOps you will find a help document “How to Pre-Register Participants” which will walk you through the process.

Remember to login to the ENA website in order to access eCourseOps, via the Courses & Education tab’s dropdown menu. There are FAQ (frequently asked questions) and other help documents on the landing page as well. Course Operations is always happy to assist you at 800-942-0011 or courseops@ena.org.
