I've been home with my children and out of Nsg for 12yrs. I want to get back to it but feel a refresher course is needed first. I was wondering if anyone has taken a course lately. I have a couple options. The course I would like to take is $1800 and includes a clinical -Is that worth it? The online course I found is less expensive- There's an option to arrange a clinical yourself- or not do a clinical at all.

I took a refresher course that included class lectures, "lab" practice and clinical experience with patients. That was very helpful for me because I had been out of the field for 13 years. The lectures, lab practice and clinical gave me much more confidence in my ability to get back into nursing and do a good job. It was also very helpful for me to be able to talk to the instructor and ask questions. I am so glad that I did not take an online course because the hands-on practice and the one-on-one relationship with my instructor taught me a lot.
Best of luck!
