Welcome to our website!
Join ASTNA today and be part of a community of professionals who share your passion for transport nursing. ASTNA is the dominant and leading body representing transport nurses across the globe. ASTNA is a nonprofit member organization whose mission is to advance the practice of transport nursing and enhance the quality of patient care through commitment to safety and education. There are many benefits of becoming an ASTNA member. We offer discounts to our trauma course, certification review, conferences, and publications.
We are dedicated to supporting our members with continuing educational opportunities, professional services, advocacy, expertise, and so much more. We are also a great resource for individuals considering transport as a career.
We continue to offer our newly updated Transport Professional Advanced Trauma Course (TPATC), formally called TNATC. We have expanded this course to all transport providers. TPATC is the only available transport-specific advanced trauma program, and I encourage you to attend one of the more than 20 courses we will offer across the country this year
We strongly support specialty certification for transport nurses. Our TraCER—Transport Certification Review Course is presented prior to CCTMC and AMTC to help nurses prepare for their certification exams. We are also adding new course dates across the country for 2014. Please check our website frequently as we are always adding new course dates for both TraCER and TPATC
