Program Description

Unlike trauma education programs targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Pediatric Care After Resuscitation (PCAR) course is specifically designed for acute care, critical care, perioperative, and rehab nurses.

Now, for the first time ever, you don't need to be at a major trauma center (or in a classroom) to experience the world's highest quality trauma nursing program. With PCAR Live Online™, you can receive elite trauma training wherever you are, whenever you are ready to begin.
