The RN Refresher course is an innovative course designed and developed by Beth-El faculty. Kathryn Woods MSN, RN, RN-BC 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.

This course provides the 220 contact hours required by Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies for reinstatement, reactivation or licensure by endorsement.

The RN Refresher Course will cover many objectives:
  • 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
Admission requirements prior to the first day of class:
  • Computer/printer access and basic online internet skills
  • Current RN Licensure or temporary work permit from the Colorado Board of Nursing
  • Nursing Malpractice insurance
  • Background Check
  • Drug Screen
  • Proof of current American Heart Association or Red Cross CPR training
  • Proof of current immunizations to include PPD, MMR, Hepatitis B, and tetanus
  • Completion of all required registration forms and payment of tuition and fees.
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.
