ENPC/TNCC Course Director Letter (Updated 7/13/21) :

ENPC/TNCC Course Director Letter​​​

Dear ENPC/TNCC Course Director,
 
Progress is on track for the new ENPC/TNCC Course Management Portal in ENA’s new Learning Management System. To help avoid disruption during the upcoming LMS transition, we are reminding you to review your course activity for July 23-Aug. 2 and understand the information below as it relates to the upcoming LMS blackout period.
 
Course Directors with Provider course activity between July 23-29 have two options:
  1. Reschedule the course.
  2. Hold the course, and ENA will automatically adjust the system so that your students have time, if needed, to take the exam in the new LMS. The end date of your course will be changed and appear as Aug. 4 in the current system to provide students the extra exam time. Even though there might only be a small overlap between your course and the July 29-Aug. 2 blackout period, all student exam deadlines will be Aug. 11 at 11:59 p.m. Central time. We understand that students might not need this additional time, but this ensures every student has a full seven days to complete the exam.
Course Directors with Provider course activity during the blackout period of July 30-Aug. 2 have two options:
  1. Reschedule the course.
  2. Hold the course and do the following:
    1. Alert students to fully complete ALL of their ENPC/TNCC pre-course modules by July 29. This is important as ENPC/TNCC pre-course modules in progress will not transfer to the new LMS. Students must complete all pre-course modules by July 29 or risk losing their work during the LMS transition.
    2. Track attendance and skills station scores on paper, and then enter data into the new LMS on Aug. 4.
    3. Alert students that their exam deadline is Aug. 11 at 11:59 p.m. Central time.
Provider Pre-course Modules and Instructor Course Modules:
  • All modules must be completed fully by July 29.
  • Students who are currently working on their ENPC/TNCC Provider Pre-course Modules or their ENPC/TNCC Instructor Course Modules for a future course must fully complete their modules by July 29 to avoid losing their work.
  • ENPC/TNCC Pre-course Modules and Instructor Course Modules will only transfer to the new LMS if ALL the modules have been completed or if the modules have not been started
Other ENA Self-Directed, Online Courses (ESI, CEN, CATN, GENE, etc.):
  • Completed and not-yet-started self-directed online courses will transfer from the current LMS to the new LMS and can be started on Aug. 3.
  • Self-directed online courses that are in progress after July 23 will still transfer, but the work done on that course will not. Learners must complete the course fully for it to transfer or start the course from the beginning after it transfers to the new LMS.
  • Self-directed online course end dates remain the same as originally assigned.
And ...
CD Training Tuesdays


Though pilot Course Directors using the new system have described it as easy-to-use and intuitive, we recommend that Course Directors view the recorded video (posted in the CONNECT community on July 9) or attend a live webinar (dates below) prior to using the new ENPC/TNCC Course Management Portal.

Live webinars will consist of the same training that is in the recorded video and have time allotted for Q&A. Webinars will run every Tuesday through September except for the Tuesday during Emergency Nursing 2021. Registration links for the July webinars are below. Hope to see you there!
