Hahnemann University Hospital and Drexel University College of Medicine to Offer Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN) Course

Trauma Nurse.JPGHahnemann University Hospital and Drexel University College of Medicine are one of the newest programs and teaching sites for Society of Trauma Nurses' Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN) course. The purpose of the ATCN course is to teach nurses and physicians a common approach in prioritizing and delivering life-saving trauma care.

Members of Hahnemann University Hospital’s nursing leadership, Charles C. Wolferth Trauma Center and Drexel's Department of Emergency Medicine recently completed an ATCN Faculty Course making this program only the second trauma center in Philadelphia that offers ATCN, as well as only one of seven in the Philadelphia region. 

"As a regional Level I trauma center, it is our duty to provide trauma education to not only physicians, but also nurses who play a critical role in our ability to provide high-quality, efficient and compassionate care to our patients," explained Marcin A. Jankowski, DO, FACOS, FACS, medical director of trauma and surgical critical care at Hahnemann.  

The development of this program will add an advanced educational opportunity that will enhance Hahnemann’s trauma nurse education. The collaboration between nursing and physicians encouraged by this course is a beneficial asset to the care of trauma patients across the continuum.
