RN Refresher

The RN Refresher - Transitioning Back to Practice is a course to update and enhance the nursing knowledge and clinical skills of registered nurses seeking to transition from a non-acute care environment (long-term care, school nursing, occupational health, home care, etc.) and seek employment at an acute care facility. The course is also designed for nurses who have been out of the nursing workforce, perhaps to raise a family, who would like to review necessary information in order to return to work as an RN. Content will afford the non-working RN up-to-date information on health problems, new technology, and the current role expectation of the registered professional nurse. The course will provide a review of fundamental competencies for medical-surgical nursing in the currently increasingly complex healthcare practice settings. Participants will experience both a skills practice and a hands-on clinical care in an acute care facility.
