70% of pediatric emergencies are treated in emergency departments that care for fewer than 5,000 children per year. ENA strives to equip every emergency nurse with the knowledge and assessment skills necessary to recognize a critically ill or injured child and provide stabilizing interventions. The Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC) is a one and a half day course developed by the Emergency Nurses Association to enable nurses to provide high-quality care for this unique patient population. The goal of ENPC is to improve pediatric patient outcomes by providing nurses with foundational knowledge, skills, and a systematic Pediatric Nursing Process (PNP) to guide patient care. Verification of successful course completion is awarded after passing the written exam and the PNP psychomotor skills station. Verification as an ENPC Provider is valid for four years.
Participants must be an RN and possess a current unrestricted nursing license to receive verification. It is preferred that participants have at least six months of clinical nursing experience in an emergency care setting before attending the course. It is assumed that the course participant possesses generic nursing knowledge, has an understanding of emergency care terminology, and has familiarity with standard emergency equipment.
