I am a registered nurse for over 20 years and have been away from the clinical setting for 7 years. I do want to go back to the hospital setting but here in Miami Florida all hospitals are asking for recent clinical skills. I signed up for a RN refresher /clinicals course in Miami Dade College and they canceled the class today due to having only 3 students enrolled. I don't understand why because the entire cost including clinicals at Jackson Memorial hospital on weekends is only 750.00 that is very cheap compared to what I have been reading from other comments. Does anybody know any RN refresher course in Miami or even Broward but it needs to have the clinicals? I don't know what else to do. It is sad that there are so many colleges and schools offering nursing classes and nobody has a good refresher course with hospital clinicals for seasonal nurses like me who wants to return to the hospital setting. Please I need an advice? Thanks

Hi. I realize you posted some time ago. I'm not sure you found the answers you needed. I am looking into refresher/remedial courses in Florida also. Here is a link to the approved schools in Florida Florida Board of Nursing Â» Florida Board of Nursing Approved Remedial Courses - Licensing, Renewals & Information If you have not been in a clinical setting for over four years both theory and clinical are needed. I live in the St. Petersburg area and I am finding setting up a local clinicals very difficult. Good luck!
