Hi all! I'm still pretty new to the RDU area (relocated here 4 months ago) and researching EVERYTHING I can get my hands on about the nursing industry down here. I'm originally from the Philadelphia metro and used to there being tons of classes for LPNs, RNs, NPs, etc. that need to further their given skill set. However, it seems like most of the classes I've seen down here only gear towards RNs and aren't really related to hands on clinical skills. I've only worked in psychiatric health and never learned how to start IVs or do ECG/EKGs, but need them to find a job. Is there anywhere locally, that I can take these classes? I was hoping to find a weekend type of training or something relatively short term, since I am in school full time and working (not in nursing) part time. I'm willing to travel if it's a weekend course too. Any ideas fellow NC nurses?
