hi, i'm new to this site. i am a registered nurse that has been out of the work force for over 16 years. i've been home raising my children, the youngest is now 11. lately i have been thinking about returning to work!!! because it has been soooo long, i know i have to take a refresher course before any hospital will hire me....i have to admit i am a bit nervous/scared at the thought of going back to "school"!!!! i'm thinking about signing up for the online refresher program. has anyone done this?? i'd like to get back to maternal/child nursing...maybe the maternity or nursery unit. thanks in advance for any thoughts and/or insight.
