April 2011 Forty First Edition


There has been a correction made to slide 34 of Chapter 12 in the TNCC Provider course. This corrected slide is available in the ‘Course Directors only’ area of the ENA Web site. You can choose to download just that one slide, or the entire chapter 12, with the corrected slide. Please feel free to contact webmaster@ena.org if you should have any technical difficulties while downloading the slide or chapter. 

To access the ‘Course Directors only’ area, the Course Director must first log in to the Web site, and then the drop down menu provided from the ‘Courses & Education’ tab will include a selection for ‘Course Directors only’. This is based on the person’s current Course Director status. Once in the ‘Course Directors only’ area, click on TNCC, and then click on slides, to locate the corrected slide and chapter. 



Course Operations currently sends to the State Chairs, twice a year, a copy of the Instructor Quality Assurance reports for Instructors that have scores of less than 3.0. We will also send the State Chairs the reports for their entire instructor pool, at their request. 

These reports were recently processed and were emailed to the State Chairs by April 8th, 2011. If no Instructors within your state have a score of less than 3.0, an email was sent to the State Chair advising them that all of their instructors are currently at 3.0 or higher. For those states that do not have a State Chair listed in our system, the information was sent to the State President. 

We will also be happy to email an individual instructor’s report directly to that instructor upon request. You can reach Course Operations at either 1-800-942-0011 or courseops@ena.org to make that request.



There has been a small change to the ENPC Provider Certificate. There is now a space to indicate how many of the contact hours awarded are designated as pediatric education. You will find that the ENPC Provider Contact Hour Breakdown form on the most recent ENPC CD-ROM and posted in the ‘Course Directors only’ area of the web, has a new column for Pediatric designated education contact hours.
