I graduated in San Francisco with an ASN in 1994 but never took my boards, I worked in nurse externships, cna positions etc...then left the nursing profession completely 7 years ago to reap the rewards of the hi-tech boom and sow my wild oats. Now I'm settled down in FL and want to return to nursing, but I need to refresh my skills and education to take the NCLEX. Does anyone have advice on where to start? Would taking an NCLEX review course or reading the study guide be enough? What about my skills? They're a little rusty, but do I need a clinical refresher course......is there even such a thing?
I'm in the Tampa Bay area (Clearwater)
Anyone else had the same situation?
Thank you all, I really appreciate it.
