A world class leader in triage education and ED consulting

Whether you are investigating a triage nurse education solution, looking for triage information, or have a need for point of entry process improvement consulting for your emergency department, Triage First can meet the needs of your department. Since 1997, our skilled educators and consultants have paved the way for lasting change by implementing programs designed to reduce risk, raise patient satisfaction, improve documentation, solve for staff empathy burnout, and a host of many other issues involved in that process called triage. Tight budget? No problem. We will work with you to tailor a program and service designed for your department and budget.

Triage First, as the recognized authority regarding emergency department triage education, was instrumental in developing and sustaining momentum (and ultimately acceptance) of a national implementation and standardization of a five-level triage acuity scale. Our professional staff of educators and researchers have contributed to the new edition of Emergency Nursing Standards (by ENA), authored nine chapters of Triage Nursing Secrets (by Lippincott), worked as a member of the ENA/ACEP Triage Task Force, been the guest speakers for thousands of attendees at national nurse and physician conferences, and a host of professional publications. Most of the Triage First educational content providers and consultants hold advanced nursing and health care administration degrees – all specializing in triage and point-of-entry processes. Emergency Nursing  education and ED process improvement is what we do, and we have been doing it for over 18 years. Partner with us to move your triage and point-of-entry processes forward, and we will honor our commitment to excellent patient outcomes. Inquire here.
