TNCC

Regardless of all the other political crapola involving us and Iraq, I am happy to see a despot put out of action by any means necessary.

I had my first of three days doing the Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) today. Yuck, I hate daytime hours. Of course, it is a day and a half of sitting on your bum fighting sleep as countless lecturers read from the book, followed by a half day of practical application practice and a half day of written test and stressful simulations.

It is good information to have though and it looks good to have the certification. Oh yeah, and it helps me to fill out my required trauma education hours for the year. Now to get my Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification renewed the first of next year. For the curious, that is basically the advanced version of CPR which is also known as BCLS or Basic Cardiac Life Support. It is very helpful in my job to understand the algorithms of ACLS.
