Hi everyone! Can someone suggest where I can apply for a RN/BSN refresher course online? I feel the need for it. I graduated 2007, but didn't work in a hospital at all. I still can remember much of what I learned, but I don't seem to have the confidence to be in the work force. Should I apply for a refresher course or just review my textbooks? Thanks in advance for your responses. It'll be very much appreciated.
P.S.--please include book suggestions that might help me refresh my memory.
FYI- this website has a list of refresher courrses by state.
Some of the state-based programs offer online learning components only e.g. Greenville Tech, Mount Carmel, Univ South Florida. I'm torn between an online course that just refreshes knowledge (cheaper) vs a course that has a clinical/skills component. Greenville is actually incredibly reasonable @ around $900 for class and skills/clinical but I don't live anywhere close to them. Programs in my area are in the 1200-2400 range. A LOT of money with little/no guarantee of employment afterwards.
