During the nursing degree there is no broad and specific specialization in traumatology, as is the case with other specialties such as mental health or maternal and child health. In relation to the discipline of traumatology, only slight glimpses are offered and, if hospital internships are not performed in a traumatology department, the nurses finish their studies without the necessary knowledge to work in that department. 

The idea of this program arises precisely from this lack of adequate training, so that nursing practitioners can specialize in this area and work with the guarantee that what they are doing is right. The main objective of this program is to equip nurses with the best knowledge and practices in the trauma field.

The program consists of several modules, divided into different areas, with the most up-to-date advances on each topic, videos and different resources for the student to acquire the necessary training. 

It provides content from primary care to specialized care, including the emergency room, the hospitalization unit and the operating room; (the least known and most complex area) that will be approached in a holistic manner and with the collaboration of different specialists. It includes videos and clinical case studies.

The program is designed to provide online instruction that provides the student with all the theoretical and practical knowledge presented through high quality multimedia content, analysis of clinical cases prepared by experts, master classes and video techniques that allow the exchange of knowledge and experience. This program aims to maintain and update the skill level of its members, create protocols for action and disseminate the most important developments in the field. With online teaching, students can organize their time and pace of learning, adapting it to their schedules, in addition to being able to access the contents from any computer or mobile device.
