February 2012 Forty Eighth Edition


With the anticipation of the ENPC 4th edition rollout, ENA would like to announce the pricing of the ENPC 4th edition manuals. The provider manual has been completely redone with updated and expanded content. Extensive development of the manuals provides brand new information supporting research driven practice. The instructor supplement has been updated with all of the new and updated material, and will now provide additional instructional information as well. 

The price of the ENPC 4th edition provider manual will be $60.00.  

The ENPC 4th edition instructor supplement will be available in a downloadable format, and has member and nonmember pricing: 

The price for instructors who are members will be $30.00

The price for instructors who are nonmembers will be $60.00


ENA truly values all of the ENPC instructors and hopes that this attractive member pricing will encourage more instructors to take advantage of the many benefits available to ENA members.




The new eCourseOps course management system was launched on November 27th and 32% of the course applications that have been processed since that date have been added by the course directors through eCourseOps! If you are a course director, and have not yet had a chance to use eCourseOps, please log in to the ENA web site and choose eCourseOps from the dropdown menu under Courses & Education. You will be able to view all your courses, invoices, and credits, as well as manage your courses, and pay those invoices. There are help documents on the eCourseOps landing page to assist you, as well as a webinar you can view.


New functionality is being developed and will focus on the needs of the State Chairs to view the courses in their states, as well as enhancing a few of the current features. More information will be provided at the Leadership Conference in New Orleans.

We continue to thank our Course Director Focus Group for providing the oversight and direction that made this project a success!



The instructor notes on slide 7 of Chapter 14 has been corrected to match the information provided in the TNCC provider manual on page 251. The corrected slide is available in the Course Directors Only section of the ENA web site. Please note this correction on page 156 of the TNCC instructor supplement as well.

Course directors: please share the updated slide with your instructors, as they do not have access to this area of the web.


Please note that there is now a place available on the top of the scantron form for the course participants to write in their email address. Please encourage your students to neatly print their email addresses so that ENA can more easily communicate with them. This will also help the students locate their information on the ENA web site if they choose to create a profile. This will also assist ENA in providing complete course information for a student when needed.
