San Antonio VA Simulation Centers Hosts First Trauma Nursing Course

Audie L. Murphy Simulation Center

SAN ANTONIO  The Audie L. Murphy Simulation Center (ALMSC) here completed their first Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) in December. With the help of Shiny Thomas and Jerry Mills, faculty from the VA North Texas Health Care System in Dallas, Texas, it was the first VISN 17 TNCC collaboration.

The class was held in the new simulation center. Trauma Nursing Process (TNP) stations were set-up using intensive care unit rooms, which allowed the opportunity to simulate trauma care areas. Learners used real and simulated equipment to create an interactive learning experience. With the help of staff from the Dallas facility, San Antonio graduated their first class of certified TNCC providers along with future instructors.
