Answer

There is no such thing as a progressive noun. There are a set of progressive tenses for sentences: these tenses indicate ongoing action, as in 'I am going now', and often use a noun form of verbs - a verb used as a noun, usually as the direct object ('going' in the previous case). But this form of verbs is called a gerund, not a progressive noun.
