MT. VERNON (Dec. 12, 2019) — Nursing students can gain the critical thinking skills and the hands-on training needed to keep trauma patients safe with the upcoming Trauma Nursing Core Course.
The course will take place 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29 and 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30 at the RLC MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon. A computer lab will be available on Thursday for testing. The cost of the course is $400, including a non-refundable course manual. Course director is Kristina Lorenzini, RN, CEN. The class may be officially attended by registered nurses with at least six months of clinical nursing experience in an emergency care setting. A required pre-course module must be completed and passed before the course and participants are asked to bring the certificate to class.
