confused

  1. I need some advice. I am an LPN that has been out of nursing for 18 years. I have contacted the board of nursing in Alabama and was informed that in order to get my license reinstated i need 24 ceu's. I know that I can get the ceu's easily but what i need is some kind of refresher course. I have ask everywhere in my area but I can't find anything. My question is do you think i should start over in an LPN program since i can't find anykind of refresher course.I would be completly lost without one. I am 44yrs old. Thank you

    No sweat. I came back after a 20 year absence and although it was hard at first (just trying to catch up with all the new technology), it is quite do-able. Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can!

    Check with your BON re CEUs; they may be able to refer you. There are also courses you can take at home that count toward CEUs. Check out Nursing Education of America at www.nursingeducationofamerica.org. Be sure to verify with your BON that CEUs from them are valid in your state.
