I'm from Illinois and just completed an RN refresher course. I started
looking into taking a refresher course since I've been out of the
hospital for six years. Try calling community colleges-that's where
almost all of them take place. Call the workforce development
They usually have them two or three times a year. I started calling
thenearest one's and than going 50-75 miles away. There are only a
few community colleges that offer them and they last about 10
to 12 weeks; with clinicals once a week at a nearby hospital. If
there is nothing close to you may want to think about traveling to
the closest place that offers one.
The cost is anywhere between $1,300-$1,800for the 10-12 weeks.
This includes theory class's and your clinical day only. Something else
you will need to know: What are the preregs: It will cost more to have
your own liability insurance
; books; uniforms; and up-to-date immunizations mandated by the hospital you will be doing your clinicals at. Good Luck, Santefe
