Do you think I need a RN refresher course?
- 1May 24, '08 by ksanda1I graduated from nursing school in Jan 07 and passed the NCLEX in March 07. I have not worked in the field due to my family committments. The great news is that I have an opportunity to start working again this summer and I am thrilled! Do you think I need a RN refresher course after 1+ year absent after graduation? If I find myself a hospital job that offers a thorough orientation program, I am sure I can pick it up again. Is LTC care facility a place to start as a new grad?
Thanks for your help with these questions.

- 1May 26, '08 by sissiesmamaHey I also agree LTC is not the best place to jump into. I would go with a good old med-surg unit where you can get some expereince there before getting into ICU, ER, or an LTC facility, especially one with vents, ect. Just an idea, I may not be right. Just what I would do.
