EMERGENCY ROOM NURSE "BOOT CAMP" ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
Trinitas helps RNs gain experience in fast-paced environment

Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Nurse Boot Camp Program is officially accepting applications! This program is designed for the registered nurse who has an interest in experiencing the critical care environment of an emergency department. The program will enhance assessment and prioritization skills and support the transition of a novice/mid-level nurse into a skillful and confident nurse. This 12-week program will increase confidence in decision making and critical thinking skills. Hands-on clinical experience will occur under the supervision of an experienced preceptor.

Trinitas is well-known for its dedication to the advancement of nursing education. The National League for Nursing (NLN) has designated Trinitas for a third time as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education for “Creating a Workplace Environment that Supports the Academic Progression of Nurses” for 2015–2020. The NLN also designated the Trinitas School of Nursing as a Center of Excellence, making it the first hospital-based nursing school in the United States to receive this honor.

Trinitas is completing a three-year, $18 million project to enlarge and upgrade its emergency department. The treatment space has been organized into specific areas for seniors, families/children and behavioral patients, and a state-of-the-art 128-slice CT scanner has been added. The overall number of treatment beds has grown from 27 to 45, making the Trinitas ER the perfect environment to advance one's critical assessment skills.

Applicants for the nursing boot camp must be registered nurses that have graduated within the last 12 months. Experienced nurses desiring to transition to the emergency department are also welcome to apply.

Program dates and deadlines are as follows:

June 5, 2017 (Application Deadline - May 5, 2017)
September 11, 2017 (Application Deadline - July 20, 2017)
