    The Michigan BON is the one who can accurately answer your questions.

    This was taken from the Michigan RN application and it states that you DO have to take a refresher course based on the following criteria:

    [FONT=TimesNewRomanPS]9. [FONT=ArialMT]All Applicants must pass the NCLEX-RN within 12 months of his or her first attempt at the test in Michiganor any other state. If the NCLEX-RN is not passed after 3 attempts within this 12-month period, theapplicant must complete an approved RN educational program, refresher course or exam review course.After completing the educational program or course, the applicant may take the examination 3 moretimes. An applicant has a maximum total of 6 attempts to pass the NCLEX-RN.
