Course Information

Course Summary

Our course has been tailored by our team of senior emergency nurses and nurse practitioners, to directly meet the needs of trauma nurses.

All of the theory content is seamlessly integrated into the scenario based training, allowing the learners to truly experience the difficulties and challenges, whilst learning how
to tackle them in a safe and effective way.

In addition to the 21st century classroom, we further augment the reality with professional live actors as patients and professional special effects to simulate their injuries.

Our trauma patients are not plastic mannikins in a training room, our location, our casualties and our training all feels real.
