Animals in Nursing Education

Trauma Training for Nurses

In addition to the rapid trend away from animal use in physician trauma training courses, most courses of this kind for nurses also use high-fidelity medical simulators. Transport Nurse Advanced Trauma Courses (TNATC) teach ATLS-like surgical skills to nurses who work on airborne medical evacuations and rescue operations. According to the Air & Surface Transport Nurses Association, the organization that oversees TNATC courses, only one of the 30 courses held in 2010 used animals, with the majority opting instead for medical simulators.
