ENPC is a 16-hour course designed to provide core-level pediatric knowledge and psychomotor skills needed to care for pediatric patients in the emergency setting. The course presents a systematic assessment model, integrates the associated anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology and identifies appropriate interventions. Triage categorization and injury prevention strategies are included in the course content. ENPC is taught using a variety of formats including, online learning, lectures, videos, group discussion and hands-on skill stations that encourage participants to integrate their psychomotor abilities into a patient situation in a risk-free setting.

ENA’s Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course 4th edition provides participants the opportunity to strength and develop their pediatric emergency nursing skills while expanding their personal growth by collaborating with nurses from a variety of practice settings. ENPC brings together participants from various emergency department settings as well as nurses working in other specialties.


All participants are eligible to receive contact hours which are based on hours attended, regardless of evaluation outcomes.  (15 Contact Hours) Successful completion of the course includes scoring 80% or greater on the multiple choice examination and demonstrating all critical steps and 70% of the total points in the evaluated skill stations.  The participant can repeat either the written test or the skills station, if needed.  ENPC verification will be issued from ENA with successful completion and remains current for four years. Non-RN personnel are also welcome to audit the course.  See www.ena.org for additional information.
