By partnering with trauma centers and trauma systems, TCAR Education Programs provides adult and pediatric inpatient nurses an outstanding learning experience designed to meet educational goals, improve patient outcomes, and fulfill regulatory requirements. PCAR (Pediatric Care After Resuscitation) is the pediatric-specific version of the adult focused TCAR course, ideal for nurses who primarily or exclusively care for children. The PCAR course offers emergency, perioperative, critical care, acute care, and rehabilitation nurses the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to address the needs of the hospitalized, injured child. PCAR covers a wide range of pathophysiologic and nursing concepts and is designed to be a broad, core-level program, rather than an advanced or specialty-specific course.
