Post Graduate Anatomy, Physiology and EKG Review Course

In order to study at the post graduate level, it is important to have a clear understanding of anatomy, physiology and EKG Interpretation (i.e. before starting the PGNET program). It is also critical for nurses to maintain their knowledge of anatomy, physiology and EKG Interpretation on an ongoing basis, whether planning to proceed on to the Post Graduate Nursing Emergency and Trauma Program or not.

In Trauma and Emergency medicine a nurse can't rely on rote memorization, notes, or books.  You will be part of a team that expects you to have a clear understanding of the human body, how the various systems interact, and be able to do PROBLEM SOLVING and CRITICAL THINKING on the fly.  As part of a team, it is also your job to pay attention to what others are saying or interpreting, in case you see an error.  If unable to function at this high level, then a nurse can put the patient, the team, and the hospital at risk. 

This Review Course is offered to help licensed medical professionals in need of a review of anatomy, physiology and Basic EKG Interpretation.  You do not need to be planning on moving forward to take the PGNET Program, in order to attend this course.  This is strictly a refresher/review course.  However, the knowledge gained here will help a student throughout the PGNET Program. Additionally, passing the final exam in this course equates with the Entrance Exam for PGNET, so a passing student does not need to take the entrance exam.

We do not offer courses specifically in critical thinking and problem solving.  We suggest that you look at local colleges for such courses, if you think you could benefit from that. 

Course Description

The Anatomy, Physiology and EKG Interpretation Review course covers these topics from a systemic perspective. When reviewing one area/system of anatomy or physiology, we include a review of how it interacts with or affects other systems or areas of the body.  It is critical that medical professionals not become myopic when presented with an issue.  We must look at the whole body to look for other symptoms, or secondary conditions that may be linked to the problem at hand.  During the course, there will be case studies offered, to help you more fully understand the subject matter.

The EKG Interpretation covered in this course covers basic foundational rhythms, commonly found in patients in the E.R.  This is not an advanced EKG rhythm interpretation course.

The Exam at the the end of this course, equates to the entrance exam for PGNET. Therefore, no additional entrance exam is required if the student wishes to proceed on to the PGNET Program.
