RN Refresher

Background Check Policy | Drug Screen Instructions

Are you an inactive registered nurse or an active registered nurse, but you feel out of practice with today's fast-paced health care environment? If so, then the new RN Refresher Course can bring you up to date with today's technology and standards. The RN Refresher course is an innovative course designed and developed by Beth-El faculty. Holly Bradshaw, RN, BSN is the current coordinator and lead faculty. Because of the need to maintain standards in a rapidly changing technological world, this course was developed to keep registered nurses knowledgeable about current nursing techniques and practices. The RN Refresher Course will cover many objectives. In this course you will:

  • Review previous knowledge and basic patient care
  • Acquire additional knowledge and skills required of a medical/surgical nurse
  • Gain a renewed sense of self-confidence as a professional nurse
  • Be exposed to traditional and new career/educational opportunities
  • Be able to transfer into a staff orientation in any health care environment

The RN Refresher course will help out-of-practice nurses feel current and technologically up-to-date. Past RN Refresher students repeatedly express the feelings of security and self-assurance that they received from taking this course:

So, if you want to reenter the health care profession as an RN, or if you feel intimidated by recent changes in technology, join our RN Refresher course and gain the skills to become an effective registered nurse.
