returning to nursing

  1. I have a BSN and have experience in several areas of nursing. I have taken several years off to raise a family and would now like to return, preferably NOT hospital nursing. Are there any refresher courses available in Upstate NY or any other paths I could look into?

    Welcome to allnurses.com!

    There is a NY State Forum at: http://allnurses.com/forums/f164/ ; if you browse through the Forum, maybe you can get some ideas on where to find refresher courses. Have you tried local Community Colleges?

    I have inquired at both community colleges and 4 year institutions. Neither offers anything. I have also called the local hospitals and they do not offer a refresher course. One does offer courses for life long learning ,but there is a substantial cost involved. Do you know if there are any reputable online programs?

    my state nurses association has a listing of refresher programs.
    so check the ny nurses assoc website?
    good luck!

    This link is old, but hopefully the contacts are still good. I got it by entering 'New York nurse refresher' into Yahoo! Search.
