The Post-Graduate Nursing-Emergency & Trauma (PGNET) program is intended for RNs and BSNs who seek expertise in Emergency Room and trauma patient care. This Post Graduate program provides nurses with additional training and experience needed to work in a hospital Emergency Room. The program consists of ten weeks of didactic (classes), followed by a ten week clinical module.Successful completion of the 10 week didactic (by oral and written exams) is required before a student can proceed to the clinical internship. The Internship is conducted under the guidance of a nurse preceptor in a contracted Emergency Department at a Level I, II or III hospital in California. To successfully complete the full program, the student must pass all didactic modules (including written and skills examinations) and receive a passing evaluation during their hospital internship.
Successful completion of the PGNET course will grant you 70 CEU's towards your required Nursing CEU's, plus a certificate of completion of the PGNET course. If a student fails to pass the internship, but has passed the didactic, reduced CEU's are granted for the didactic portion of the program. For more Details on the PGNET course, Click Here.

This program will offer an opportunity to RN Graduates to review and expand the knowledge gained during their RN program, which will be followed by an internship in a Medical Ward at a Dignity Hospital in California. If there are openings in the hospital where a student does their internship, and if the student performs well during their internship, there is a possibility that they may be invited to apply for that position.
Most internships will be carried out in the Fairfield-Vacaville area, and that is our preference. However we have access to other Dignity Hospitals around the state and we can try to place a student in a hospital closer to their place of residence if it poses hardship on the student (e.g. financial) to remain in the Fairfield area to do their internship.
This program is expected to begin in the Fall of 2020. Student must have successfully completed their RN (including the NCLEX).
