About

The Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC) certification, offered by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), is a specialized program designed for registered nurses who provide care to pediatric patients in emergency settings. The ENPC certification equips nurses with the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently and effectively manage critically ill or injured pediatric patients. It emphasizes hands-on, interactive learning with a focus on patient care and emergency treatment protocols for pediatric patients.

Eligibility

  • Participants must be a registered nurse to receive verification.

  • Licensed practical nurses and paramedics are eligible to attend all portions of the course and obtain CNE hours, but are not eligible for provider status verification.

Completion Time: 1.5 days to complete the course, 2-hour open book test

Cost: Costs vary based on the course provider, but average $300 for ENA members and $350 for non-members.

Course Format

Exam Format

Following course completion, candidates must pass a 50-question open-book exam, with randomized questions. They have two attempts to pass the exam. Those who don’t pass in two attempts must repeat the provider course before taking the exam again. To pass, you must score an 80% or better.

Course Format

The ENPC course includes a mix of lectures, videos, skill stations and patient care scenarios.

  • Course Duration: Typically 1.5 days.

  • Content: Pediatric assessment, resuscitation, trauma, medical and surgical emergencies and special considerations for pediatric patients.

  • Assessment: Includes an open-book written examination with a 2-hour time limit and two attempts to pass, and practical skills testing.
